Dan Zhang

I am a second year MS/Phd student in the School of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I work with Prof. Gerome Miklau in the Database Group.

I am interested in secure and private management of databases. My current research focus is Realistic Data Mining under Differential Privacy. Prior to joining UMass, I earned my Bachelor's degree from the Department of Computer Science and Technology at Harbin Institute of Technology.


Our paper Principled evaluation of differentially private algorithms using DPBench got accepted by SIGMOD 2016!
