Jonathan Ullman joined the College of Computer and Information Science faculty as an assistant professor in fall 2015. He completed his PhD at Harvard University under the supervision of Dr. Salil Vadhan. He was also in the inaugural class of junior fellows in the Simons Society of Fellows.

Professor Ullman works broadly in theoretical computer science. He has worked extensively on questions such as; “When and how can we analyze a dataset while ensuring privacy for the individuals in the dataset?” and “How can we prevent false discovery in the empirical sciences?”  Professor Ullman studies and aims to answer these questions using tools from cryptography, computational learning theory, and game theory.
