Short Biography

In 2012, Marie-Christine Jakobs finished her studies in computer science at Paderborn University. She received her doctor's degree in 2017 from Paderborn University. From 2017 to 2019 she worked as postdoctoral researcher at LMU Munich. From 2019-2023 Marie-Christine Jakobs was an assistant professor at TU Darmstadt. Since 2023 she has been a professor for at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. She has also been contributing to the software analysis tool CPAchecker since 2012.


Marie-Christine Jakobs does research in the area of automatic software verification. Her research focuses on static analysis, model checking, testing, and runtime monitoring. She is interested in theoretical foundations as well as tool development. One of her current research interests is incremental verification, in which information from a previous verification run is used to simplify the verification of the current, modified program. Furthermore, currently she also looks into the combination of verification approaches, verifier-based testing, optimization of runtime monitoring, and the validation of verification results.
