  • Canada CIFAR AI Chair
  • Pan-Canadian AI Strategy




Mijung’s primary focus is on building privacy-preserving machine learning algorithms using a sophisticated mathematical notion called differential privacy. Her other research interests include: compressing neural network models using Bayesian methods, and; understanding the relationships between differential privacy and other emerging notions in machine learning such as fairness, interpretability, and causality.
