Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Algorithm
  • Operating system

Cynthia Dwork spends much of her time researching Differential privacy, Computer security, Data mining, Cryptography and Theoretical computer science. The concepts of her Differential privacy study are interwoven with issues in Actuarial science, Data structure and Row. Her Computer security research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in De-anonymization and Data analysis.

Her Data mining research incorporates elements of Data set, Spurious relationship, Estimator, Information privacy and Synthetic data. Her study in Cryptography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Control, Confidentiality, Official statistics and Access control. Cynthia Dwork interconnects Algorithm, Hash function, Mathematical proof and Modulo in the investigation of issues within Theoretical computer science.

Her most cited work include:

  • Calibrating noise to sensitivity in private data analysis (3875 citations)
  • Differential privacy (3121 citations)
  • The Algorithmic Foundations of Differential Privacy (2208 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Theoretical computer science, Differential privacy, Computer security, Algorithm and Discrete mathematics. Her studies in Theoretical computer science integrate themes in fields like Gas meter prover, Mathematical proof, Cryptography, Protocol and Computation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Information privacy and Internet privacy in addition to Differential privacy.

Her Algorithm study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Function, Bounded function and Shared memory. Her Discrete mathematics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Constant, Upper and lower bounds and Zero-knowledge proof. Her studies deal with areas such as Statistical inference and Row, Database as well as Data mining.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Theoretical computer science (24.26%)
  • Differential privacy (17.02%)
  • Computer security (13.62%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Differential privacy (17.02%)
  • Theoretical computer science (24.26%)
  • Data mining (11.91%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her main research concerns Differential privacy, Theoretical computer science, Data mining, Machine learning and Artificial intelligence. Her Differential privacy study also includes

  • Internet privacy which is related to area like Confidentiality,
  • Time complexity which connect with Grothendieck inequality. In her study, Information privacy is strongly linked to Knowledge management, which falls under the umbrella field of Confidentiality.

The various areas that she examines in her Theoretical computer science study include Computation, Protocol and Oracle. Her study on Computation also encompasses disciplines like

  • Computer security most often made with reference to Relaxation,
  • Statistic most often made with reference to Raw data. She combines subjects such as Basis, Spurious relationship, Statistical inference and Multiple comparisons problem with her study of Data mining.

Between 2012 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The Algorithmic Foundations of Differential Privacy (2208 citations)
  • Learning Fair Representations (714 citations)
  • The reusable holdout: Preserving validity in adaptive data analysis (199 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Algorithm
  • Operating system

Her primary areas of study are Differential privacy, Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Theoretical computer science and Data mining. Her research in Differential privacy intersects with topics in Computer security, Information privacy and Privacy software. Her work deals with themes such as Computation, Identity, Internet privacy and Relaxation, which intersect with Computer security.

Her Artificial intelligence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Statistical inference and Group. Her Theoretical computer science research includes elements of Accuracy improvement, Exponential function and Summary statistics. In her research, Data set, Common cause and special cause and Multiple comparisons problem is intimately related to Spurious relationship, which falls under the overarching field of Data mining.
