Research Interests

My research interests have been very wide ranging over the last two or more decades and details of much of this work can be found on my Research page.

My current interests are in the area of Privacy Preserving Data Repositories. I am specificially interested in investigating how to build a privacy-aware database management system and then to determine ways to ensure privacy is preserved when it is being mined. The work first must define a data model suitable for data preservation that meets the intentions defined by various governmental agencies.
