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 work focuses on software verification using superposition-based first-order theorem proving. As part of this work, I’m developing the SPECTRE verification tool.

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

Research Interests

  • Software Verification
  • First-order Theorem Proving
  • Induction, Horn Clause Solving
