Nadin Kokciyan

Dr Nadin Kokciyan is a Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence in the School of Informatics at University of Edinburgh; and a Visiting Research Fellow in the Department of Informatics at King’s College London. She received her PhD from Bogazici University and held a postdoc position at King’s College London prior to joining University of Edinburgh. Her research interests include multi-agent systems, privacy in social software, explainable AI and AI ethics. She uses AI techniques to address privacy challenges in online systems such as IoT systems. For this, she is interested in agent-based models where each agent represents a user and acts on behalf of the user to make privacy decisions. Her prior work includes the development of efficient algorithms to detect and prevent privacy violations in Online Social Networks. Nadin regularly serves on the program committees for leading AI conferences such as AAMAS, IJCAI, AAAI and ECAI; and for privacy workshops such as PriML, PPML, PiMLAI, and HotSos. She was part of organising committees in various privacy workshops such as AI for Privacy (AI4P), 2020 and Workshop on AI for Privacy and Security (PrAISe), 2016.
