Bernhard Gleiss

Project assistant, PhD student

I am a PhD student with Laura Kovács. I graduated with a Dipl.-Ing. degree in Computational Intelligence from TU Wien in 2016. Prior to this, I obtained my BSc in Math from Universität Wien.

My PhD thesis focuses on software verification using superposition-based first-order theorem proving. As part of my PhD, I’ve developed the RAPID verification tool and the SatVis visualization tool, and furthermore contributed to the state-of-the-art theorem prover Vampire.

In 2017, I visited Arie Gurfinkel at the University of Waterloo, where I worked on optimizing the Z3 Horn Clause engine Spacer.

In 2018, I interned in the Automated Reasoning Group at Amazon Web Services. During that internship, I designed and implemented scalability-optimizations for Tiros, a service for the automated security analysis of AWS-based networks
