Dr. Patricia Derler is a Research Scientist at National Instruments, Berkeley. She received her Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Salzburg, Austria and her undergraduate degree from the University of Hagenberg, Austria. She has been awarded her Ph.D. degree sub auspiciis Praesidentis rei publicae (under the auspices of the President of Austria). After she graduated, she became a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley. In 2015, she joined National Instruments in Berkeley. Her research surrounds modeling and simulation of Cyber-Physical Systems with a focus on timed models of computations, correct-by-construction methodologies for system-level design and analysis as well as modeling of predictable behavior in software, platform, network and environment. She was program chair and technical program committee member for various conferences and served as editor for various journals.

Research Interests:

  • Modeling and development of cyber-physical systems
  • Models of computation for distributed embedded real-time systems
  • Modeling and simulation of time
  • Predictability in software, platform, network and environment
  • Aspect-oriented modeling
