Adam Groce

Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Mathematics Department
Division of Mathematics and Natural Sciences

Adam Groce is a cryptographer whose work focuses on database privacy. The goal of this field is to allow large databases of private information (e.g., medical records) to be used by researchers interested in advancing our understanding of the world while at the same time protecting the individuals whose information the databases contain. He is also involved in efforts to apply game-theoretic concepts to cryptography, treating adversaries as self-interested agents with particular goals. Apart from his research in cryptography, he is interested in all aspects of theoretical computer science, as well as in cybersecurity policy questions. Adam holds bachelors degrees in mathematics and political science from MIT and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Maryland. He joined Reed as a visitor in 2014.
