I am a PhD student at Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS) and Saarland University under the supervision of Derek Dreyer, head of the Foundations of Programming group.

+

I am a post-doctoral researcher in the PDOS group at MIT CSAIL under the supervision of Frans Kaashoek and Nickolai Zeldovich.
+Previously, I completed my PhD at MPI-SWS and Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany; my advisor was Derek Dreyer.

-

Previously, I did my Bachelor's thesis in computer science at the Compiler Design chair of the university (also see below).

I am on the academic job market this year (fall 2021), mostly looking for faculty positions in Europe.

I am currently working on giving a formal model to Rust's type system. -This work is part of the RustBelt project.
-The Rust work builds on my previous work on a logic to support modular reasoning about higher-order concurrent imperative programs. The focus there was on providing simple building blocks that are powerful enough to recover more sophisticated reasoning techniques that were often axiomatized in previous logics.

My two main lines of work are about Rust and Iris.
+On the Rust side, I am working (also in collaboration with the Rust language team) towards a solid formal foundation for the language, including in particular the unsafe parts. +One key result here is our type safety proof, which also describes a methodology for establishing type safety of well-encapsulated unsafe code. +My goal is to make unsafe Rust just as safe as safe Rust by means of formal verification.
+On the Iris side, besides continuing development of its logical foundations, I am interested in applying Iris to new problem domains; recently I started working on modular verification of fault-tolerant distributed system components.
