Matthias Schlaipfer

Project Assistant

I am currently a PhD student with Prof. Georg Weissenbacher at TU Wien. I graduated with a Dipl.-Ing. degree from TU Graz in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Roderick Bloem.

My PhD work is in the broad area of program synthesis, programming languages, and proof theory. In this context I have contributed to the GAPT tool developed at TU Wien.

In 2015 I interned at Microsoft Research Cambridge where I worked on optimizing the Datalog engine of the Z3 SMT solver (used for network verification) under supervision of Nuno Lopes.

In 2016 and 2017 I interned at Microsoft Research India with Akash Lal and Kaushik Rajan. The work resulting from my internships on optimizing big-data queries using program synthesis was published at SOSP.

In 2019 I interned at Amazon Web Services with Rustan Leino, where I worked with the Dafny programming language and on the accompanying program verifier.

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.
