I am an Assistant Professor in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Michigan — Ann Arbor, where I lead the MARVL group. I am also affiliated with Computer Science and Engineering and Robotics.
I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University in 2013, where I was advised by Dexter Kozen, as well as a Diplôme d'Ingénieur from École polytechnique in 2007. I used to be a Researcher at Samsung Research America in Mountain View, California and a Post Doctoral Fellow working with André Platzer at Carnegie Mellon University.
