Naoise Holohan

Research Scientist

Naoise Holohan is a research scientist at IBM Research Europe, working on the Privacy and Security of AI in the Dublin Research Lab. He joined IBM in 2017, and now leads the team’s efforts in differential privacy (DP), which includes development of the Differential Privacy Library, an open source machine learning library for differential privacy.

Prior to joining IBM, Naoise graduated with a PhD from Trinity College Dublin for his work on “Mathematical Foundations of Differential Privacy”. His interests in DP centre around developing user-friendly tools, ensuring those without a deep knowledge of the technology can still use it with ease to protective sensitive data and generate useful non-sensitive insights.
