About Robi

I joined the Department of Computer Science of the University of Waikato in February 2003, where I stayed as a Visiting Lecturer for the year 2003. I studied Computer Science at the University of Kaiserslautern in Germany, where I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 1998.

Before coming to New Zealand, I spent a couple of years working for Siemens Corporate Research in Munich, Germany, where I was involved in the research and software development for a modelling and verification tool for discrete event systems.

Research Interests

Control software, discrete event systems, model checking.
