Thomas Neele

I am an Assistant Professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology(TU/e) in the group Formal System Analysis. I am the Managing Director of the IPA research school. My research interests are the analysis of concurrent behaviour and its associated scalability problems. In the context of model checking, I study symbolic techniques, syntactic transformations for reduction, and partial-order reduction. My other interests are fixpoint logics, parallel programming and automata learning.

Previously, I was a postdoc at Royal Holloway, University of London(RHUL), working on model learning of concurrent automata in the CLeVer project. I carried out my PhD at the TU/e-FSA group; my thesis titled "Reductions for Parity Games and Model Checking" received the IPA dissertation award. I finished both my bachelor and master in Computer Science at the University of Twente. As part of the curriculum, I visited the Trustworthy and Intelligent Systems group at Chinese Academy of Sciences for an internship in the summer of 2015.


Today I started as Managing Director of IPA. I am looking forward to many interesting talks and fruitful interactions at one of the IPA events. First on the planning is a course on software engineering.

I am PC co-chair of SPIN 2024. This 30th edition introduces artifact evaluation features an anniversary track for historical accounts and other papers of broad interest. See the call.

The TU/e will host SEFM 2023 in Eindhoven, November 6-10. I am one of the local organisers, hope to see you there.

The special issue of STTT on TACAS 2021 tool papers that I guest edited is complete. We accepted six high-quality submissions. The full issue is available via Springer.

On 29 March, to celebrate winning the IPA dissertation award 2020, I will talk about my research and about the lessons learned during my PhD. Event details are on the IPA website.
