Mehr Informationen

Ich bin wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter und Doktorand in der Software Engineering Group. Mein Betreuer ist Prof. Reiner Hähnle.

Ich möchte darauf hinweisen, dass ich im April 2017 meinen Nachnamen von Scheurer zu Steinhöfel geändert habe. Suchen Sie nach einem Dominic Scheurer, bin das wahrscheinlich ebenfalls ich.

Research Interests

My interests center around logics and program verification. In the past, I was working on State Joining and Abstraction techniques. Currently, I am focusing on making heavyweight symbolic execution practical by (1) applying it in (sound) program transformation and compilation, (2) developing a system for collaborative specification of software libraries, (3) improving the scalability of symbolic execution by integrating state merging in loop invariants and method body specifications, and (4) using symbolic execution for assessing the strength of formal verifications.



I'm not involved in any lectures in the current term.
