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 Dániel Varró

Dániel Varró is a WASP Professor in Software Technology for Complex Software Systems at Linköping University and an Adjunct Professor at McGill University. Professor Varró started his WASP Professorship in January 2023.

What is your position/role in WASP?

I am a Professor at the Department of Computer and Information Science at Linköping University (LiU), recruited thanks to the support from WASP.

Why did you choose to join WASP?

WASP provides an excellent and unique opportunity that allows me to spend more time on important and timely research challenges in software engineering.

What are the benefits you see in WASP?

To carry out cutting-edge research, WASP offers an attractive funding package, a strong network for new PhD students, and ample opportunities to collaborate with leading researchers and innovative companies within Sweden.

Briefly describe your research topic.

My research is mainly related to the digital design and assurance of critical autonomous software-intensive systems, which is at the intersection of software engineering, cyber-physical systems and machine learning. I am also interested in how to provide quality assurance for machine learning programs.

In what way can your research be of importance to our society in the future?

While advanced machine learning algorithms are increasingly used in various autonomous systems, such as self-driving cars, drones or vessels, the safe operation of such ML-driven systems cannot be certifiably guaranteed as of today. My research will improve the quality and safety assurance for such systems in order to increase human trust in a justifiable way.
