I am Joshua Moerman, a computer scientist. Currently, I am assistant professor at the Open University of the Netherlands.
I received my PhD at the Radboud University in Nijmegen at the Software Science department. Under supervision of Frits Vaandrager, Bas Terwijn, and Alexandra Silva I worked on nominal automata and black box testing in the context of active automata learning.
My research interests include formal verification, PAC learning, coalgebraic methods, functional programming, black-box testing theory, and category theory.
1 May 2021 I start at the Open University as assistant professor.
27 April 2021 Our paper on weighted register automata has been selected as a distinguished paper at LICS.
14 April 2021 I gave a talk on weighted register automata at OWLS.
19 February 2021 I am in the PC of ICGI 2021, the international conference on grammatical inference. This will be held on 23-27 August 2021.
18 December 2020 Paper on generating functions with Lutz Klinkenberg, Kevin Batz, Benjamin Lucien Kaminski, Joost-Pieter Katoen, Tobias Winkler and myself has received the best paper award.
