About Rajiv Shah

Shah’s research seeks to understand the relationship between the design of information technologies and society. Many fundamental societal concerns, such as privacy, are intertwined with the hardware and software of information technologies. He focuses on two aspects of this, the development of information technologies and how information technologies regulate behavior.
For the last few years, my research focused on Chicago's use of video surveillance and smart cameras. I published an empirical study on surveillance cameras and crime in Chicago as well as an exploratory study on the effectiveness of red light cameras in Chicago.
