About Me

I am a postdoc at the Chair for Foundations of Software Reliability and Theoretical Computer Science at TU Munich, working in the group of Javier Esparza, within the ERC-supported project PaVeS, since June 2019.

Previously, I was a PhD student in the Doctoral College LogiCS, and a project assistant in the FORSYTE group at TU Wien, supervised by Josef Widder and Igor Konnov.

Research Interest

Formal methods, Parameterized Model Checking, Verification and Synthesis of Fault Tolerant Distributed Algorithms, Knowledge and Topology in Distributed Computing
