Research Interests

Modeling and analysis of safety, dependability and security aspects of software-intensive embedded systems by means of model checking, theorem proving and testing. More specifically, the development of new model checking techniques based on symbolic techniques (e.g. abstraction, confluence, fixpoint equation systems, constraint solving) and high-performance computing (e.g. distributed model checking, multi-core and out-of-core algorithms). Application domains include embedded systems, distributed systems, security protocols, and biological systems.
