Hi! I’m Spyros Pavlatos and I am a second year PhD student at University of Pennsylvania advised by Rajeev Alur. I’m also a proud member of PLClub!

My research interests are focused around Programming Languages and Distributed Systems. More specifically, I am interested in verification techniques and programming abstractions for distributed applications.

Before joining Penn, I completed my undergraduate studies at National Technical University of Athens under the supervision of Kostis Sagonas. My undergraduate thesis was focused on developing a test suite for model checking Persistent Memory programs.
