Suguman Bansal

I am a CRA/NSF Computing Innovation Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Rajeev Alur at the Department of Computer and Information Sciences at University of Pennsylvania. I completed my Ph.D under Prof. Moshe Vardi at Rice University.

I am on the Academic Faculty Job Market. Would love to chat about opportunities!

My research goal is to advance Assured Autonomy using formal methods and programming languages to design-develop-deploy safe AI systems. My current research thrusts include:

  • Formal Methods for Reinforcement Learning [NeurIPS21]
  • Automata-Based Quantitative Reasoning [TACAS21, CAV19, CAV18b, FoSSaCS18]
  • Reactive Synthesis from High-Level Specifications [CAV21, POPL20, AAAI20, CAV18a]
  • Upcoming and Recent Talks. July 20: CAV 2021 [Paper] | September 15: Highlights of Logics, Games, and Automata (Talk Video) | September 20: Continuity, Computability, Constructivity: From Logic to Algorithms | October 5: IARCS Verification Seminar | December 6-14: NeurIPS 2021 [Paper]
