    PhD student

    Project Description

    In the last decade, the energy sector has been undertaking a significant shift in the way electricity is generated, traded and consumed. With the introduction of smart meters - devices that can measure and communicate users' electricity consumption every several minutes - more and more innovative services become available to users.

    One of these services is the peer-to-peer (p2p) electricity trading that allows users to trade electricity among themselves (via trading platforms), rather than buying from (or selling to) their suppliers. For example, a user with a solar panel can sell directly his/her excess electricity to another user, and vice versa. Such markets have huge potentials as, apart from bringing extra profit to their participants, they can also contribute to increasing the uptakes of renewables.

    However, such p2p trading requires complex interactions and data exchanges among various existing and new market players, inevitably introducing several security and privacy issues. Considering the time and computational constraints of the market operations, as well as the interconnectedness and interdependence between different market players, ensuring secure data exchanges in p2p markets is not trivial. Entities need to authenticate each other and be assured of the integrity of the messages they receive. Similarly, ensuring that personal data of users are not revealed to any party is not straightforward. Examples of personal data are users' names, addresses, electricity consumption, preferences, monthly bills, etc.

    The aim of this project is to apply (a combination of) various (computationally-demanding) advanced cryptographic technologies, such as blockchain, smart contracts and secure multiparty computation, to design p2p electricity trading solutions that achieve a good balance between security, user privacy, usability and energy efficiency.

    JP Morgan - ROAR Data
    Cryptography - Multi Party Computation

    Here’s something to ponder. Each of three people possess an integer modulo seven. They must determine the sum of their integers modulo seven without use of a trusted third party, and ensuring that the Bayesian posterior for all participants is precisely the prior conditioned on the new information only.

    We’re guessing you know that one. If you enjoy privacy preserving computation and recognize the potential, you might want to join a team of top tier engineers, data scientists, mathematicians and cryptographers working on the ROAR platform. You will collaborate across engineering and business units to help build a next-generation prediction platform used by the bank, the bank’s clients, and eventually - we hope - the entire world.

    You will:

    • Design, implement and improve techniques for privacy preserving Machine Learning using whatever techniques are most appropriate (cryptographic, statistical and a combination of the two).

    • Design, implement and improve partial structure preserving data obfuscation methodologies

    • Design and analyze hypothetical statistical attacks, real and hypothetical

    • Design and build into our contest framework new primitives, and combinations of the same, to expand the possibilities for crowd-sourcing data, predictions and models.

    • Work with leading experts in secure multiparty computation.

    • Collaborate with researchers and students as part of the JP Morgan/ ROAR partnership with MIT, which involves Sloan CIDL and MIT CSAIL.

    • Adapt privacy methods to real-time data streams.
