I am a PhD student at the Theory of Hybrid Systems Group headed by Professor Dr. Erika Ábrahám. My research focuses on reachability analysis for linear hybrid systems based on flowpipe construction. I am developing a C++ library for state set representations in the context of the project Hypro, which is also available at github. Furthermore I am interested in SMT-solving, where I am contributing to the development of SMT-RAT by maintaining the Interval Constraint Propagation (ICP) module.

I am also a complementary researcher in the research training group UnRAVeL working on state set representations for the analysis of hybrid systems.
