Shantanu Rane

Shantanu Rane is interested in the broad areas of signal processing, information theory, and applied cryptography. His current research interests are in privacy preserving computation, dimensionality reduction, and visual analytics.

Before joining PARC, Shantanu was a Principal Researcher at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL), where he conducted fundamental and applied research on various topics, including secure multiparty computation, visual inference, secure biometrics, distributed source coding, and information hiding.

Dr. Rane received a Ph.D. degree from Stanford University, and a Masters degree from the University of Minnesota, both in Electrical Engineering, and a Bachelors degree in Instrumentation and Control Engineering from Pune University (India). He has participated in standardization activity for the H.264/AVC video coding standard, and the ISO/IEC SC37 Subcommittee on Biometrics. He currently serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security and the IEEE Signal Processing Letters. From 2011-2013, he served as an elected member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society's Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee (IFS-TC).
