I obtained my PhD in Mathematics in
2009 from the University of Leeds. Before joining TU
Wien I have held research and teaching positions at
the University of Edinburgh (School of Informatics)
and University of Oxford (Department of Computer
Science and Keble College).

### Teaching

At TU Wien I am primarily concerned
with research. In the past I have taught numerous
tutorials, classes and lectures in computer science and
mathematics. These include: Functional Programming
(Haskell); Imperative Programming (Scala); Logic &
Proof; Models of Computation; Set Theory;
Lambda-Calculus and Types; Reasoning About Information
Update; Automata, Logic & Games; Calculus;
Continuous Mathematics; Discrete Mathematics; Linear
Algebra; Analysis, and Mathematics for Engineers.
