Tejas Kulkarni

Hello world! My name is Tejas Kulkarni and I am a third year Ph.D student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, UK mentored by awesome Prof. Graham Cormode. Previously, I did my masters with Prof. John Augustine in India.

My current research interests is privacy preserving data analytics. Now a days, I am building some background in differential privacy. I am affiliated with the WISC.

I spent the academic year 2016-17 at the Alan Turing Institute, London.

I will be in the job market next year. Please contact if you have an interesting postdoc/industry opportunity broadly in the topics of privacy + machine learning.

All authors are arranged in an alphabetic order (This is a standard convention in theory communities.)

Accepted Tutorials

  1. Privacy at Scale: Local Differential Privacy in Practice (KDD 2018)

Accepted Papers during my PhD

  1. Marginal Release Under Local Differential Privacy Model. [code] With Graham Cormode and Divesh Srivastava (ACM SIGMOD 2018)
  2. Constrained Differential Privacy for Count Data. With Graham Cormode and Divesh Srivastava (IEEE ICDE 2018)

Work Under Progress (I will add links once the work is completed.)

  1. Answering XYZ under Local Differential Privacy. With Graham Cormode and Divesh Srivastava
  2. Releasing PQR in decentralized privacy settings. With Aurelien Bellet et al. from Magnet, INRIA Lille)

During my masters, I dabbled in the area of theory of distributed algorithms. These are the publications from my masters education.
