Glencora Borradaile






         Associate Professor & College of Engineering Dean's Professor, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Oregon State University

Overview

Glencora believes that communication should be private and secure by default and worries about corporate and state threats to first-amendment protected activities.  She is on the advisory board of the Civil Liberties Defense Center where she helped initiate and continues to build a Digital Security program to support activists and their lawyers. She has initiated a research program whose mission is to support the digital needs of activists, and ensure that everyone can communicate freely and safely, regardless of their identity.  She also created and teaches an interdisciplinary course on communications security and social movements that is offered through the Difference, Power and Discrimination program of Oregon State University’s Baccalaureate Core.  She is on the 2018 program committee of USENIX’s Workshop on Advances in Security Education.

In the past, Glencora’s research focused on traditional network flow and design problems in planar graphs and other sparse graphs.  This work has been funded by an NSF CAREER award, and two collaborative NSF Algorithmic Foundations grants. She was on the program committees for ICALP 2018, STOC 2014, ESA 2014, SODA 2012 and SODA 2011. She still does this work some of the time, and continues to be interested in discrete optimization problems.

Glencora has a B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Western Ontario (2002) and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Brown University (2008) and held a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo.
