Hi! I’m Sarah Radway, a second year PhD student in Computer Science. I am a 2022 NSF Graduate Research Fellow, interested in writing policy-informed technical works in the security and privacy realm.

In recent good news, last year I co-first authored this paper, which I presented at FCSM 2021, Oakland (IEEE S&P 2022), and most recently, at the National Academies CNSTAT 2020 Census Data Products Workshop last summer. This work contextualizes the U.S. Census Bureau’s transition to differential privacy through an in-depth comparison with swapping (the de-identification method used by the Census Bureau in 2010). Our presentations focus on data privacy and utility, exploring issues surrounding minority underrepresentation, group size, and the single-year-of-age use case.

These days, I’m working (1) on questions about virtual reality data privacy and (2) in the anonymous communications space.
