I am a PhD student and member of the FRAPPANT project at the Software Modeling and Verification Group headed by Professor J.-P. Katoen. My research interests include:

  • Semantics of (heap-manipulating) probabilistic programs
  • Techniques and calculi enabling the automated verification of probabilistic programs
  • Concepts and logic for quantitative verification

Teaching

I am currently involved in the following teaching activities:

In the past, I have been involved in the following teaching activities:

Supervision

I am supervising our student research assistants Philipp Schröer and Tom Biskup.

Moreover, I am supervising or have supervised the following thesis projects:

  • Florian Keßler, On the Decidability of Entailment Checking in Quantitative Separation Logics, Bachelor’s Thesis, 2020.
