I am a PhD student in the Software Modeling and Verification Group at RWTH Aachen headed by Professor Joost-Pieter Katoen and in the Quantitative Verification Group at Saarland University headed by Professor Benjamin Kaminski.


My research interests include the deductive verification of probabilistic programs, as well as quantitative aspects of (partial) incorrectness logic. I am also interested in the connection between Hoare logic and Kleene algebra. Currently, I am studying the precise relationship and expressiveness of both approaches.


If you are interested in writing a Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis in quantitative aspects of logic or verification, don’t hesitate to contact me. For an overview of currently available topics, see our thesis projects. I am currently supervising the following students:

  • Angela Krebs. Bachelor’s thesis
  • Anran Wang. Master’s thesis

Past thesis projects:

  • Haya Alkhaled. A Strongest-Post-Style Calculus for Reasoning about Runtimes. Bachelor’s thesis
