Thanh-Hai Tran

» Project assistant, PhD student

I am a Ph.D. candidate under the supervision of Dr. Igor Konnov and Dr. Josef Widder in the LogiCS program at TU Wien. I am currently working on the APALACHE project to develop a symbolic model checker for TLA+, and develop verification techniques for failure detectors in distributed algorithms.

My main interests are in formal verification, distributed algorithms, and decision procedures. I also have broader interests in computer science education, cryptography, and security.

I have received my MSc in Computer Science from the European Master Program in Computational Logic. In my master program, I had chances to study in TU Dresden, Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, and TU Wien. Prior to this, I obtained my BSc in Computer Science from University of Science, Vietnam National University – Ho Chi Minh City.


Fun

I am Vietnamese, and our first names often have meaning behind them. For example, Thanh is blue, and Hai is an ocean. So, my first name means a blue ocean. It is beautiful, but very popular in Vietnamese. The 14 most popular last names in Vietnam account for well over 90 percent of the population. We have more first names but not as many as in Western countries.

My Github account “banhday” is a Vietnamese traditional cake which is a white, flat, and round glutinous rice cake. It symbolizes the Sky, and we usually eat it in the Lunar New Year holiday.
