His interests include the development of techniques and tools for improving software reliability, security, and trustworthiness, and the validation of such techniques on real-world systems.


The Georgia Institute of Technology, also known as Georgia Tech or GT, is a co-educational public research university located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It is part of the wider University System of Georgia network. Georgia Tech has offices in Savannah (Georgia, USA), Metz (France), Athlone (Ireland), Shanghai (China), and Singapore.

Georgia Tech's reputation is built on its engineering and computer science programmes, which are among the best in the world5,6. The range of courses on offer is complemented by programmes in the sciences, architecture, humanities and management.


Udacity is a for-profit educational organization founded by Sebastian Thrun, David Stavens, and Mike Sokolsky offering massive open online courses (MOOCs). According to Thrun, the origin of the name Udacity comes from the company's desire to be "audacious for you, the student".
