My research is concerned with modelling and analysis methods for complex systems, such as those arising in computer networks, electronic devices and biological organisms. The analysis methods that I investigate include simulation and formal verification, with particular emphasis on quantitative verification of probabilistic systems. My work spans the whole spectrum, from theory, through algorithms to software implementation and applications. [more details...]


Marta Kwiatkowska is Professor of Computing Systems and Fellow of Trinity College, University of Oxford. Prior to this she was Professor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham, Lecturer at the University of Leicester and Assistant Professor at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland. She holds a BSc/MSc in Computer Science from the Jagiellonian University, MA from Oxford and a PhD from the University of Leicester. [more details...]

Doctoral study in computer science

I welcome applications for doctoral study and postdoctoral visitors in areas relevant to my research interests. Possible research topics are described here, but I am happy also to consider students' own proposals. If you are interested in a D.Phil. position (this is what PhD is called at Oxford) please email me. [more details...]

Upcoming Event

Marta Kwiatkowska will deliver the BCS Lovelace Lecture 2020/2021. The Lovelace Lecture is presented by the recipient of the Lovelace Medal. Established in 1998, the Lovelace Medal is awarded for outstanding contribution to the understanding and advancement of computing. Marta was awarded the 2019 BCS Lovelace Medal for her research in probabilistic and quantitative verification.

The title of her lecture is 'Probabilistic model checking for the data-rich world'. The lecture will take place from 4pm on 5th May 2021 and will be held online. See here for more details and to register.
