Curriculum Vitae

Tobias Ladner joined the Cyber-Physical-Systems Group as a Ph.D. candidate under the supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Althoff in 2022. Tobias has received both, his master's degree and his bachelor's degree in Informatics from the Technical University of Munich in 2021 and 2019, respectively.

His research interests include formal verification of neural networks and neural network controlled systems. He is a member of the DFG-funded project “Formal Verification of Analog AI Hardware (FAI)“.
