Dr. Thomas Roth
Electronics Engineer, NIST Smart Grid & Cyber-Physical Systems Program Office
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Dr. Thomas Roth leads the software development activities of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cyber-physical systems testbed. His research interests are in formal methods for the composition of cyber-physical systems, group management algorithms for distributed systems, and the detection of compromised cyber-physical devices using constraints of the physical system. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Missouri University of Science and Technology. His graduate research used physical measurements on the power grid to verify conformance to negotiated agreements on electrical power usage.
