ENW-KLEIN grant for Dr. Monshizadeh

10 February 2021

Dr. Nima Monshizadeh of the Engineering and Technology Institute Groningen (ENTEG) has been awarded an ENW-KLEIN grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) worth EUR 295,000. The grant is for his project ‘Quenching the thirst for privacy: a system-theoretic approach’.

Smart homes and buildings, intelligent transportation systems, and automated systems, are all becoming an indispensable part of our life. The perceived aim of these emerging sophisticated technologies is to bring us ‘comfort’. To gain such comfort and boost the performance of modern technological devices, however, privacy has been sacrificed. This stems from the fact that collecting data and exchange of information have formed the cornerstone of our modernized society. “Hence, we need to take a step back and re-examine the building blocks of the state-of-the-art algorithms, methodologies, and devices from the viewpoint of privacy”, says Monshizadeh. While privacy issues are typically addressed in static databases, Monshizadeh aims at investigating the privacy aspects of streaming data, particularly the data generated by dynamical systems.


The ENW-KLEIN grant offers researchers the opportunity to establish scientific innovations that can form the basis for the research themes of the future.
