Hi! I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) in Klosterneuburg, Austria. My postdoc advisor is Prof. Thomas A. Henzinger. My primary research interest is in the correct design of safety-critical cyber-physical systems, specifically through scalable abstractions and formally verified synthesis algorithms. My other research interests include the development of tools for detecting and preventing algorithmic biases in machine-learned decision makers.

I finished my PhD in 2022 at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS) in Kaiserslautern, Germany, under the supervision of Prof. Rupak Majumdar. The title of my PhD thesis is “Pushing the Barriers in Controller Synthesis for Cyber-Physical Systems.” It won the 2023 ETAPS doctoral dissertation award.

You can have a look at my cv if you are interested to know more.
