WASP is very proud to have so many excellent researchers involved in the program. More than 450 researchers, reaching from assistant to senior professors, are affiliated with WASP. Some are international recruitments who have come to Sweden to join the WASP community, others are already well established in the Swedish academic system.
Through a series of portraits, you get the opportunity to get to know them a little bit better.
Meet Ahmed Rezine
Ahmed Rezine is an Associate professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science at Linköping University. Dr Rezine joined WASP in 2022.
What is your position/role in WASP?
Project leader and supervisor.
Why did you choose to join WASP?
I joined WASP because of the opportunity it offers to conduct exciting and world class research on research areas that already impacts many technologies.
What are the benefits you see in WASP?
WASP makes possible building a critical mass and resulting synergies for conducting high quality research that will have meaningful impacts on the future of an exciting field.
Briefly describe your research topic.
I look for ways to extend automated verification techniques. Interests:
- automatic verification in general and model checking, abstract interpretation, and decision procedures in particular
- parameterized verification: concurrent, distributed systems
- cache coherence protocols and timing side-channel attacks
- safety of machine learning algorithms
In what way can your research be of importance to our society in the future?
I strive to extend, both practically and theoretically, the applicability of automatic formal verification to new systems, including ML applications. In several application domains, it is not enough to build artifacts that behave often well, we need artifacts that cannot behave unsafely.
