Robert Watson
Robert Watson Robert is a Lecturer in Systems, Security, and Architecture at the Computer Laboratory. He leads several cross-layer research projects spanning computer architecture, compilers, program analysis, program transformation, operating systems, networking, and security. His current research looks at clean-slate CPU/software for security, software analysis and transformation, and network-stack performance and tracing. Past work includes the Capsicum capability system and TrustedBSD MAC Framework, a widely deployed OS access-control extensibility framework (now found in FreeBSD, Mac OS X, Apple iOS, Junos, and other products). Robert has strong interests in open source, and is a member of the FreeBSD Foundation board of directors.
