I am external associate professor (Privatdozent) at TU Wien and senior research scientist at Informal Systems.
In the past, I worked at the Parasol Lab at Texas A&M University, at the Laboratoire d’Informatique LIX at Ecole polytechnique, at the ECS and FORSYTE groups at TU Wien, and at Interchain Foundation.

My primary area of interest is the theoretical approach to distributed algorithms, currently focussing on automated verification of fault-tolerant distributed algorithms.

CfP: Workshop on Exploiting Concurrency Efficiently and Correctly (EC^2 2010)

The annual Workshop on Exploiting Concurrency Efficiently and Correctly (EC2) is a forum that brings together researchers working on formal methods for concurrency, and those working on advanced parallel applications. Its goal is to stimulate incubation of ideas leading to future concurrent system design an verification tools that are essential in the multi-core era.
