Richard K. Roberts


I am a first year Ph.D. student studying Computer Science through the Maryland Max Planck Program, at the University of Maryland and the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems. My primary research interest is Computer Security.

I am currently researching several topics including (but not necessarily limited to): establishing security guarentees in the presense of a malicious mobile operating system, improving the efficiency and practicality of certificate revocation on the web, and investigating the behavior of the Linux Random Number Generator under adversarial input.

I am jointly advised by Dave Levin and Peter Druschel.
