About Dr. Hedge

Associate Professor in the Department of Computing Science and a PI at Amii.

Before joining the University of Alberta in February 2020, she spent many years in industry research working on many interesting problems. Most recently Dr. Hedge was a research team lead at Borealis AI (a research institute for the Royal Bank of Canada), where her team worked on privacy-preserving methods for machine learning models and other applications for the bank. Prior to that Nidhi spent many years in research labs such as Bell Labs, Technicolor, and Orange.


Her research interests are in probabilistic modelling and algorithmic design of machine learning for networked and multi-agent systems, and inference under bias and privacy constraints. 

Her current focus is on privacy, and fairness and bias in machine learning.
