Tibor Schneider

I am a third-year PhD student at ETH Zurich in the Networked Systems Group, advised by Prof. Dr. Laurent Vanbever. My current research aims to improve network operations using formal methods.

I have received my Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from ETH Zurich. With my work during the Master’s thesis, I explored approaches for planning and performing configuration updates in large-scale internet networks.
