We welcome Laura Kovács, who joined the FORSYTE group as a full professor of computer science in April 2016.

Laura also holds a part-time associate professorship at the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. Her research deals with the design and development of new theories, technologies, and tools for program analysis, with a particular focus on automated assertion generation, symbolic summation, computer algebra, and automated theorem proving. She is the co-developer of the Vampire theorem prover. In 2014, she received the prestigious Wallenberg Academy Fellowship and an ERC Starting Grant. She holds an MSc from the Western University of Timisoara, Romania, and a PhD degree from the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation of the Johannes Kepler University, Linz, Austria.
