Wenting Zheng is an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at CMU. Her research interests are in computer systems, security, and applied cryptography. Her recent focus is on building systems that enable “sharing without showing:” multiple organizations can jointly compute on their collective sensitive data while only learning their own input and the final result. She obtained her Ph.D. in EECS from UC Berkeley, and MEng. and bachelor’s from MIT. She was the recipient of a Berkeley Fellowship from 2014 to 2016, an IBM Research Fellowship from 2017 to 2018, and was an invited participant at the 2019 EECS Rising Stars workshop.
