Nidhi Hedge’s research focuses on a fundamental understanding of privacy and fairness in machine learning algorithms and systems, and the design of privacy-preserving and fair algorithms. She is  interested in the generation of private synthetic data, privacy-preserving sequential sharing of data, the understanding of privacy in the context of sequential and non-independent data, and the understanding of potential tradeoffs between privacy and fairness.
