Parv Venkitasubramaniam's research interests are in developing theoretical foundations for privacy in networks. Specifically, he applies tools in statistical signal processing, information theory and game-theory to study fundamental trade-offs between privacy and performance in networks under different adversarial conditions. He is also interested in studying anonymity in a more general category of networked systems such as peer production, smart grid networks and transportation systems. His doctoral research was in the area of wireless sensor networks, specifically on distributed multiple access communication and statistical inference in large networks. More details about his research can be found here.

Prior to joining the Lehigh faculty, Parv served as a visiting post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, hosted by Prof. Venkat Anantharam.
