Portrait of Clemens Dubslaff

Our team member Dr. Clemens Dubslaff worked at the Chair of Algebraic and Logical Foundations of Copmuter Science. Within CeTI, he developed techniques to analyze, explicate, and explain tactile internet applications. Dr. Dubslaff recently CeTI to pursue a career as a professor and is now working as an assistant professor at TU Eindhoven. In a small farewell interview he tells us about his future research.

Where are you headed after your time at CeTI and what will you be working on there?

I will join the “Formal System Analysis” group at TU Eindhoven (Netherlands) as an assistant professor. Modern computing systems are becoming more and more complex while taking on more and more tasks, including in areas critical to society. It is hence of utter importance to increase their reliability and, if possible, to prove their correctness. In Eindhoven, I will develop novel methods to analyze even large and complex systems for their reliability and to make the analysis results explainable.

How does this differ from your previous work?

Up to now I was a PostDoc at the chair of Prof. Dr. Christel Baier for Algebraic and Logical Foundations of Computer Science. In particular, in the K4 project, we developed novel machine learning algorithms inspired by human reasoning and neuroscience. For TP5 we developed methods to explain the influence of configurations on system properties, supporting the development of context-aware and self-explanatory Tactile Internet Applications.

What was your highlight at CeTI?

The team. It is wonderful to see how a team has been built over the last years – competing with manifold interdisciplinary challenges. I am very excited to see what results will emerge in the future.

What will you miss most about Dresden and the surrounding area?

On the one hand, nature: Saxon Switzerland and the Elbe River offer an incredibly beautiful panorama, regardless of the season. On the other hand, I miss traditional German bread here in the Netherlands and a slightly better functioning cafeteria.

The employees of CeTI wish Dr. Clemens Dubslaff all the best and a successful start at TU Eindhoven.
