I am an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at
Carnegie Mellon University and
received my PhD at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
My research focuses on solving hard-combinatorial problems in areas such as formal verification, number theory, and
extremal combinatorics. Most of my contributions are related to theory and practice of satisfiability (SAT) solving.
I have developed award-winning SAT solvers, and my preprocessing techniques
are used in state-of-the-art SAT solvers.
My current research focusses on two major challenges for SAT solving:
1) exploiting the potential of high-performance computing; and
2) validating the results of SAT solvers and related tools.
I have been developing a novel parallel SAT solving paradigm,
called cube-and-conquer,
which enables linear time speedups on many hard problems. The first publication on cube-and-conquer won the
best paper award at HVC 2011.
The increasing complexity of SAT solvers and related tools makes it more likely that these tools contain bugs.
I designed a new proof format and implemented a fast, corresponding proof checker for
SAT and QBF solvers. Proof-logging in this format has been mandatory for the
SAT Competitions since 2013, thereby increasing the confidence
that tools produce correct results. By constructing and validating a
proof for the Boolean Pythagorean Triples problem (200 TB in size),
I showed that proof logging and verification is even possible for the hardest problems.
I am one of the editors of the Handbook of Satisfiability.
This 900+ page handbook has become a standard for the SAT community, and it is a tremendous resource for future scientists.
I am an Associate Editor of the Journal on Satisfiability, Boolean Modeling and Computation and was a co-chair of the
SAT 2015 conference in Austin. My
research statement and resume offer
more details.
