Sascha Fendrich

Mathematician and Computer Scientist (Dr. rer. nat.)

I am currently working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT).

My main research interest is the semantics of data and data processing. This includes the following buzzwords: logic and mathematical foundations of computer science, programming languages and paradigms, algorithms and data structures, concurrency, software analysis, software verification, formal methods, spatio-temporal reasoning, machine learning, optimization, industrial data processing, data mining, big data and computational linguistics.

Previously, I was a researcher in the DFG-funded project Foundations of Heterogeneous Specifications Using State Machines and Temporal Logic (project website), where I successfully defended my PhD-Thesis Modal Interface Theories for Specifying Component-based Systems.
