I have been a PhD student at the Software Modeling and Verification Group (MOVES) headed by Professor Joost-Pieter Katoen since April 2021. Additionally, I am a doctoral researcher within the Research Training Group UnRAVeL.


My research focus is on the verification of partially observable stochastic models, in particular the analysis of partially observable Markov decision processes (POMDPs). An emphasis is on the development of approaches that can be used in practice to verify certain properties on these models.

I am a developer of the probabilistic model checker Storm.
