I’m leading the Rigorous Software Engineering lab of the Formal Methods in Systems Engineering Group. I’ve a master’s level degree from Graz University of Technology and a doctorate in computer science from Oxford University. Prior to my appointment in Vienna, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Princeton University.

My current research on the detection and explanation of Heisenbugs is funded by a Vienna Research Group for Young Investigators grant (stay tuned for publications on that topic).
