Hi! My name is Travis Peters and I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College. I completed my undergraduate studies in Washington State where I received my B.S. in Computer Science & Mathematics from Western Washington University.
My advisor is Dr. David Kotz. I am currently a member of the Trustworthy Health & Wellness (THaW) team where I work on problems related to Trustworthy computing and Secure I/O. Concurrently, I am also working on the Amulet project -- a collaborative effort between Dartmouth College and Clemson University to create a secure and low-power wearable device suitable for running mHealth applications. In particular, I've worked on the development of a secure and lightweight OS for wearables as well as tools that assist developers in the process of developing energy and memory efficient applications for constrained devices. My current research interests include security and privacy issues in pervasive computing, particularly in an mHealth context, trustworthy computing, and wearable/mobile systems.
This term (Spring 2016) I am a TA for Computer Science 50: Software Design & Implementation. Details about where you can find my office and when my office hours are can be found below. I'm also an assistant track coach for the Hanover High School Track team where my wife, Mary, and I co-coach middle- and long-distance runners. Please don't hesitate to stop by or send an email my way if you want to chat or if you need help with anything!
