Research Interests

My research interests include formal verification and automata theory. I have worked (and still am) on model checking of various types of systems, different aspects of temporal logic, as well as synthesis and game solving. I am also working on applications of formal methods to biological modeling.

ERC Consolidator Project

dSynMA: Distributed Synthesis from Single to Multiple Agents

I will soon be awarded an ERC Consolidator grant to work on distributed synthesis.

The main aims of the project are to study theoretical foundations that will enable to apply reactive synthesis from temporal specifications to work for multiple agents.
This includes studying two-player games and their solutions, modelling solutions for interacting agents, and studies of temporal logic.

I am looking for PostDocs and PhD students to join me. These positions are open for all nationalities.

If you are interested in further details please get in touch.

Short Bio

I completed my PhD in 2005 at the Weizmann Institute of Science under the supervision of Amir Pnueli.
