Research Interests

Marie-Christine Jakobs does research in the area of automatic software verification. Her research focuses on static analysis, model checking, testing, and runtime monitoring. She is interested in theoretical foundations as well as tool development.

One of her current research interests is incremental verification, in which information from a previous verification run is used to simplify the verification of the current, modified program. Furthermore, currently she also looks into the combination of verification approaches, verifier-based testing, optimization of runtime monitoring, and the validation of verification results.
