Jessica Sorrell

PhD student
Computer Science & Engineering Department
University of California - San Diego

I'm in the final year of my PhD, advised by Daniele Micciancio and Russell Impagliazzo. I'm broadly interested in responsible computing, particularly questions related to fairness, privacy, robustness, and reproducibility. I also work on problems in lattice-based cryptography, with a focus on secure computation. In the fall I will be joining the University of Pennsylvania as a postdoc with Aaron Roth.

In my free time, I enjoy aerial silks, lifting, and playing with my cats.
