Manel Slokom

Manel Slokom is a 4th year PhD student at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands.
Her research focuses on purpose-aware privacy-preserving data for recommender systems.
She works on generating synthetic data that protect users' information while maintaining the quality of recommendation.
At the beginning of her PhD, she worked on generating partially synthetic data and now she is exploring and testing fully synthetic data for recommender systems.
She is also interested in fairness.
She served as a student volunteer at RecSys for three years (2018, 2019 and 2020).
In 2021, she will be a student volunteer co-chair and co-organizer of the 1st Workshop on Simulation and Synthetic Data for Recommender Systems (SimuRec) part of RecSys’2021.
