I am Oshani Seneviratne, a second-year graduate student from the
Decentralized Information Group at Massachusetts Institute of
Technology (MIT). My research interests are mainly on policy aware
systems and the semantic web. I am currently involved in the
Transparent Accountable data Mining Initiative(TAMI) [1] where I have
developed several "accountability" tools on the Tabulator [2].

I will be participating in this XG as an invited expert. I hope this
group will discuss and will come up with standards and/or technical
solutions to address issues related to privacy of publicly available
social data. I am specifically interested in adverse use of personal
information on the web.

Looking forward to working with you all!
