Dr. Murat Kantarcioglu
My research focuses on
creating technologies that can efficiently extract
useful information from any data without
sacrificing privacy or security. Recently I have
been working on security and privacy issues raised
by data mining, privacy issues in social networks,
security issues in databases, privacy issues in
health care, applied cryptography for data
security, risk and incentive issues in assured
information sharing, use of data mining for fraud
detection, botnet detection and homeland security.
