Prof. Shastri is seeking a student for a research project. Description: The project is in the broad area of computer systems + law. Our society is in the midst of granting a new right to people: privacy and protection of personal data. Think of GDPR in Europe or CCPA in California. While these laws precisely define their legislative intentions i.e., what they intend to accomplish legally, they leave to broad interpretations their technical implementations i.e., how a company should build and operate computing systems to meet their obligations. This gap between policy and practice has confounded even the most technologically advanced companies and has resulted in hefty financial penalties and legal tussles. The goal of this project is to bridge this gap by establishing the state of the art (SOTA) in data protection regulations. Our progress so far can be seen on this project website and in this paper. You will help expand this effort in interesting new directions. Qualifications: (i) good academic standing, (ii) competency in system building, e.g., web applications, (iii) familiarity with Python, git, and cloud platforms, and (iv) curiosity about data protection regulations. Some heuristics to check your preparation: excelling in CS2820/3620/3640, completing a tech internship, contributions to an open-source project, or working with other faculty members. Of course, strong motivation and commitment can make up for some of the missing preparations. Terms: The appointment will be for the summer 2023 term but could be extended based on performance and interest. Minimum commitment of 20 hours per week and for 2 months (more is welcome). Pay will reflect the student's preparation. Those making substantial contributions will get a strong letter of recommendation as well as referrals to graduate school and/or industry jobs. If this sounds interesting, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. [4/13/2023]
