About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher at CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security.

My main line of research is forming logical frameworks and verification methods for complex hyperproperties, such as common knowledge, asynchronous hyperproperties, and causality. I also love to play with automata, and I am particularly interested in automata learning.

I joined the Reactive Systems Group in August 2021. Prior to that, I was a PhD student at the Computer Science department at the Technion, Israel, advised by Prof. Orna Grumberg and Dr. Sarai Sheinvald. My PhD thesis was about automata-theoretic approaches to the verification of systems with data.
