Derek Williams



I'm a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in Computer Science at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas under the direction of Dr. Wolfgang Bein. My main research focus is computational game theory.

I am the current president of the Nevada Beta Chapter of Tau Beta Pi.

Previously I completed B.Sc. and M.Eng. degrees in Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Louisville where my research focus was hyperelliptic curve cryptography. I spent a year at the University of Waterloo as part of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department and Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research where my research focus was fault-tolerant cryptography.

I used to be very involved in Wikipedia as an administrator and a list of my major contributions can be found here. I started the PlanetMath Exchange and am the author of the first anti-vandalism software.

I am a professional poker player and have a poker strategy blog. I make training videos for Daniel Negreanu's PokerVT.com.
