Matthias Schlaipfer

Project Assistant

I am currently a PhD student with Prof. Georg Weissenbacher at TU Wien. I graduated with a Dipl.-Ing. degree from TU Graz in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Roderick Bloem.

My PhD work is in the broad area of program synthesis, programming languages, and proof theory. In this context I have contributed to the GAPT tool developed at TU Wien.

In 2015 I interned at Microsoft Research Cambridge where I worked on optimizing the Datalog engine of the Z3 SMT solver (used for network verification) under supervision of Nuno Lopes.

More recently I interned at Microsoft Research India with Akash Lal and Kaushik Rajan. The work resulting from my internship on optimizing big-data queries using program synthesis has recently been published at SOSP.
