- Kristjan Liiva, University of Edinburgh (2013-).
Co-supervised with Dr Paul B. Jackson, Edinburgh.
Kristjan is working on decision
methods in real algebra and analysis, with a special interest in
the design and application of SMT-oriented decision procedures for
nonlinear real arithmetic.
2014, he will begin receiving
support from Microsoft Research, Cambridge, with Christoph
Wintersteiger as his MSR mentor.
