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 topics: logic and mathematical foundations of computer science, programming languages and paradigms, algorithms and data structures, concurrency, software analysis, software verification, formal methods, 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.
