Artificial intelligence, privacy, security, multi-agent systems, economics of electronic privacy and information security


Rachel Greenstadt is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Drexel University. Dr. Greenstadt's research centers on the privacy and security properties of multi-agent systems and the economics of electronic privacy and information security. Her lab -- the Privacy, Security, and Automation Laboratory (PSAL) -- focuses on designing more trustworthy intelligent systems that act autonomously and with integrity, so that they can be trusted with important data and decisions. The lab takes a highly interdisciplinary approach to this research, incorporating ideas from artificial intelligence, psychology, economics, data privacy, and system security. However, a common thread of this work has been studying information flow, trustworthiness, and control. Recently, much of the work has focused on using machine learning to better understand textual communication.
