Open assignments and positions

I typically supervise students for Master’s internship or graduation projects. A list of current (last updated June 2020) graduation project assignments can be found here. If you are interested in one of these, or want to discuss ideas for a different graduation project topic, please contact me.

I’m also interested in supervising doctoral students at TU/e, provided you either get self-funded via a grant, do a part-time PhD in combination with your job, or work on a project we have funding for.

Current postdocs and students

I currently (co-)supervise the following at TU/e and SU:

Postdoctoral researchers

  • (2020-) Gökhan Kahraman, postdoc at TU/e on the ArrowHead Tools project.

Doctoral students

  • (2020–) Hossain Muctadir, PhD student at TU/e on model consistency as part of the Digital Twin program.
  • (2020–) David Manrique Negrin, PhD student at TU/e on model orchestration as part of the Digital Twin program.
  • (2018–) Kousar Aslam, PhD student at TU/e on joint project with ASML, working on learning component models by using active automata learning techniques.
  • (2017—) Sangeeth Kochanthara, PhD student at TU/e on (Software) Architecture and Functional Safety as part of the i-CAVE (integrated Cooperative Automated VEhicles) program.
  • (2017–) Melanie Mauch, PhD student at SU on compressed pattern matching. Partially funded by NRF CPRR project “SaSy and DaPPR: Sequences and Syntax, Distributed & Parallel Pattern Recognition”.

Master’s students

  • (2021) Tajinder Singh, MSc AT (Automotive Technology) student at TU/e on MSc final project with [Siemens], working in the area of Safety Systems for Connected Automated Vehicles.
