Research Interests

Modeling and analysis of safety, dependability, performance, and security aspects of software-intensive embedded systems by means of model checking, theorem proving and testing.

Synthesis of parameters and strategies for the control and testing of safety-critical systems.

The development of new model checking techniques based on symbolic techniques (e.g. abstraction, confluence, fixpoint equation systems, constraint solving) and high-performance graph algorithms (e.g. distributed and multi-core model checking algorithms).

Application domains include embedded systems (e.g. railway safety interlockings), distributed systems (e.g. blockchain and smart contracts), security protocols and risk analysis (e.g. through attack-defense trees), energy optimisation (e.g. through stochastic timed automata) and signaling pathways in biological systems.
