Thomas Pani

I’m a research assistant in the FORSYTE group at TU Wien. I started my PhD studies under the supervision of Helmut Veith and am currenlty co-supervised by Georg Weissenbacher and Florian Zuleger. I hold a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from TU Wien.

Short CV (Oct 2018)
Full academic CV (Oct 2018)

NEW: I’m offering master’s thesis and semester project at the intersection of formal methods and machine learning.


  • concurrency, thread-modular reasoning, parameterized systems
  • termination, liveness, automated complexity & resource bound analysis

Welcome Georg Weissenbacher

Georg Weissenbacher, leader of a WWTF funded Vienna Research Group, will start his work in our group on July 2. His project “Heisenbugs: From Detection to Explanation” is applying formal methods to identify hard-to-detect errors in computer systems. See a newspaper article on his work in “Der Standard”.

Uni-Finanzierung als Absurdes Theater (Der Standard)

An sieben Universitäten werden in Österreich Informatik-Studien angeboten, aber mehr als 50 Prozent der Studierenden wählen die TU Wien – über 1000 Studienanfänger jährlich. Der gute Ruf der TU Wien wird zum Fluch für das Studium, denn auf 52 habilitierte Professoren kommen fast 7000 Studierende; ein solches Verhältnis wäre bei anderen international führenden Universitäten undenkbar. […]
