Hey there! I am a theoretical computer scientist by day, based in sunny Liverpool.
I am interested in all things logics, automata, game theory and computer-aided verification. These days, I mostly focus on timed automata and (stochastic) games played on graphs, where we study the complexity of strategies.
Most of my published work is on infinite-state models and includes extensions of vector addition systems (aka. Petri nets) with data, pushdown stack, alternation or branching. I have worked extensively on variations of one-counter automata, which are finite state machines with access to a single integer variable. A list of my publications is available here and on the dblp.
Short Bio & Misc Info
Before joining Liverpool's Department of Computer science as a lecturer, I did postdocs at the LFCS in Edinburgh (2016-2018) and spend a year each at the University of Warwick (2015) and LaBRI in Bordeaux (2014). I hold a PhD from the University of Edinburgh and a diploma (Dipl. Inf.) from the University of Hamburg where I grew up.
In my spare time I attempt to play the trumpet and maintain a healthy appreciation of good whisky. I am overly passionate about free software. I have a ha-index of 80 and happily support the initiative.
