Poorvi L. Vora is Professor of Computer Science at The George Washington University (GW). Her recent research focus has been on statistical election audits. In collaboration with others and her students, she has developed the Athena class of statistical election audits that are much more efficient than existing ballot polling audits and were used to audit primary elections in Montgomery County, Ohio, in 2020 and in a pilot audit conducted by the State of Rhode Island in 2022. She has also worked on end-to-end independently verifiable (E2E) voting systems which enable voters and observers to audit election outcomes without requiring them to rely on the trustworthiness of election technology or unobserved election processes. She was a member of the team that deployed polling-place, paper-ballot-based, E2E voting system Scantegrity II in the Takoma Park elections of 2009 and 2011, and of the team that developed remote voting E2E system Remotegrity and accessible voting variant Audiotegrity, used in 2011. The Takoma Park election of 2009 was the first election to enable voters and observers to audit an election outcome without requiring them to trust voting technology or election officials. She is also interested in cryptanalysis and privacy and in the applications of information theory, coding and game theory to problems in these fields. Prof. Vora has a Ph.D from North Carolina State University.
