Dr. Jennie Rogers Receives NSF Career Award For Research Supported By CAPriCORN

Dr. Jennie Rogers, assistant professor of computer science at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering, has been named a recipient of the Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award is among the foundation’s most prestigious honors in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education.

This five-year award will provide more than $500,000 in support of Dr. Rogers’s efforts to develop a private data federation that runs queries using SQL,  a standard database communication language, in a way that addresses privacy concerns and regulatory requirements. Dr. Rogers has been collaborating with CHIP’s director Dr. Abel Kho and CAPriCORN in working to address the challenge of privacy-preserving data analytics for clinical data research. The findings from Dr. Rogers’s project, which include the open-source private data federation prototype, could empower database users to gain actionable insights from fractured datasets without specialized training.
