Pavol Černý

Welcome!

  • I am an assistant professor in the ECEE department at CU Boulder.
  • My research areas are computer-aided verification and programming languages, recently with applications in networking, artificial intelligence, and software engineering. My focus is on program synthesis.
  • I work with a great group of PhD students. We are members of CUPLV. I am looking for postdocs and PhD students who are enthusiastic about verification and programming languages.
  • I teach undergraduate courses on (concurrent) programming and graduate courses on computer-aided verification and program synthesis.
