Research

I am a computer security researcher who investigates and develops new techniques targeting solutions of foundational security problems. My aim is to bring rigorous cryptographic thinking to security engineering.

As a research scientist at MIT CSAIL, Marten worked together with Prof. Srini Devadas, with an emphasis on processor architectures that offer strong security guarantees.  Most notably, this collaboration led to the introduction of the first circuit realizations of Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) which received the A. Richard Newton Technical Impact Award in Electronic Design Automation in 2015; it led to the design of Aegis, the first single-chip secure processor that verifies integrity and freshness of external memory; and gave rise to a simple and efficient Oblivious RAM which received a best paper award at CCS 2013.  While at RSA, Marten co-designed the IRIS authenticated file system with proofs of retrievability which received the NYU-Poly AT&T Best Applied Security Paper Award, 3rd place, 2012.  His work on fully homomorphic encryption over the integers was nominated (1 out of 3) for best paper award at Eurocrypt 2010.  Prior to working in system security he was a research scientist at the digital signal processing group at Philips Research where he became the lead inventor of the error correcting codes used in Blu-ray disc.
