Two new faculty to join MPI-SWS
We are pleased to announce that two new faculty will join MPI-SWS.
Maria Christakis is joining us from the University of Kent, England, where she is a Lecturer at the School of Computing. Maria’s goal is to develop theoretical foundations and practical tools for building more reliable and usable software and increasing developer productivity. She is primarily interested in software engineering, programming languages, and formal methods. Maria joins the institute as a tenure-track faculty member, effective Oct 16, 2017. Maria was previously a post-doctoral researcher at Microsoft Research Redmond. She received her Ph.D. from ETH Zurich and her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. Maria is the recipient of the ETH medal and the EAPLS Best PhD Dissertation Award.
