Josef Widder

 

I am non-tenured associate professor (Privatdozent) in the Embedded Computing Systems group at TU Wien.
In the past, I worked at the Parasol Lab at Texas A&M University, the Laboratoire d’Informatique LIX at Ecole polytechnique, and at the FORSYTE group at TU Wien.

My primary area of interest is the theoretical approach to distributed algorithms, currently focussing on automated verification of fault-tolerant distributed algorithms.

CV from January 2016.
