Co-owner, Project Coordinator
Péter Bokor received his computer science PhD in 2011 from the Technische Universität Darmstadt (Technical University of Darmstadt). His research interests include model checking with a special focus on partial-order reduction and symbolic execution, automated testing, fault-tolerance, and distributed systems.
Péter spent three years (2012-2015) with BSH (former Bosch/Siemens) Home Appliances in Berlin where he contributed to setting up a new SW framework for automated HW-in-the-loop testing. In the roles of the technical project coordinator and one of the leading architects he assisted in developing an R&D prototype into a mature framework that can be applied to automated, high-quality testing of various HW/SW products.
In 2015 he has joined IncQuery Labs where his main task is guiding and supervising verification- and testing-related research and development projects.
Co-founder, MDE, IncQuery expert
Gábor Bergmann has a PhD in Software Engineering and an MSc in Computer Engineering from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics.
