Bio:  Anupam Datta is an Associate Professor at Carnegie Mellon University where he holds a joint appointment in the Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments. His research focuses on the scientific foundations of security and privacy. Datta’s work has led to new principles for securely composing cryptographic protocols and software systems; applications of these principles have influenced several IEEE and IETF standards. His work on privacy protection has led to formalizations of privacy as contextual integrity and purpose restrictions on information use; accountability mechanisms for privacy protection; and their applications in healthcare and Web privacy. Datta has authored a book and over 40 other publications on these topics. He serves on the Steering Committee and as the 2013-14 Program Co-Chair of the IEEE Computer Security Foundations Symposium. Datta obtained Ph.D. (2005) and M.S. (2002) degrees from Stanford University and a B.Tech. (2000) from IIT Kharagpur, all in Computer Science.
