Sivakanth Gopi

Senior Researcher


I am a senior researcher in the Algorithms group at Microsoft Research Redmond. I graduated with a PhD from Princeton University in 2018. I am broadly interested in Theoretical Computer Science with a special focus on Coding Theory and its applications to Distributed Storage, Cryptography, Data Privacy, Pseudorandomness and Complexity Theory. I am also interested in Differential Privacy. I am involved with the DNA Storage project and Project Laplace (differential privacy) at Microsoft. I completed my undergraduate studies at IIT Bombay with a major in computer science and a minor in mathematics.
