About me

This is Dr Ali Shahin Shamsabadi! I am a Research Associate at the Artificial intelligence (Safe and ethical) under supervision of Adrian Weller at The Alan Turing Institute. Meanwhile, I am a visitor at CleverHans Lab where I was a Postdoctoral Fellow under the supervision of Nicolas Papernot at Vector Institute before joining the Turing. I have received a PhD in Computer Science from the Queen Mary University of London. During my PhD, I did internships at Inria (with Aurélien Bellet and Emmanuel Vincent on the intersection of differential privacy and audio) and The Alan Turing Institute (with Adria Gascon and Matt Kusner on the intersection of multi-party computation and machine learning). I was also a PhD visitor at Imperial College London working with Hamed Haddadi.


I love to explore the intersection of Machine Learning, Privacy, Fairness, Security, Explanation and and Image/Audio Processing!
My research has been published at top-tier conferences including NeurIPS, ICLR, CVPR, CCS, USENIX Security and PETs. My research interests and recent works include:
