Biography

I am currently involved in developing software for statistical disclosure control (SDC). Disclosure may occur when sensitive information about an individual can be reliably inferred from a release of data (possibly by a private organisation, or by a statistical agency). This risk might relate to a single release of data or a set of related data releasesd. SDC concerns the perturbation of data to protect individuals' privacy, whilst attempting to retain the statistical utility of the data. Many of the associated problems are computationally complex and much of my work involves the development and implementation of efficient algorithms. Most of my software is written in Python.
