About me

Christian Cianfarani

I’m a second year Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the University of Chicago, advised by Professors Heather Zheng and Ben Zhao. I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science and Urban Studies from Brown University in 2020. My research interests lie mainly in the field of machine learning privacy and security. Recently, I’ve been working on problems related to the privacy and security implications of voice cloning, as well as adversarially training models that are robust to multiple classes of attacks.
