Shantanu Rane manages the Cyber-Physical Systems Security research area at PARC. He conducts research at the intersection of the fields of signal processing and applied cryptography. His recent work has focused on privacy-aware computation and security of critical infrastructure. He recently led PARC’s participation on a DHS project in differentially private machine learning. 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, secure biometrics, distributed source coding, and information hiding. He has also worked at the National Center for Radio Astrophysics, run by the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (India) where he designed and implemented a feed positioning system for the Giant Meterwave Radio Telescope. Shantanu 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 Magazine. 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). His research, thus far, has produced over 70 papers and 35 issued patents.
