I am a researcher at Carnegie Mellon University, Silicon Valley and NASA Ames. My research focuses on automated analysis and verification of component-based software systems. I currently work on the automated inference of component models that combine control- and data-flow using static and dynamic analysis methods (symbolic execution and active automata learning).
For the past one and a half years I served as the PI of a NASA funded research project aiming at defining, integrating, and conducting initial research efforts in V&V of flight critical systems. I received my Ph.D. from TU Dortmund in Germany, where I have worked in the Programming Systems group.
