Bernhard Garn

Bernhard Garn

is researcher at SBA Research.

Research Interests

Bernhard’s research focuses on design theory and discrete mathematics as well as applications thereof. With his background in mathematics, he is especially interested in the application of theoretical results to practical problems, effectively bridging the gap between discrete mathematics and application domains of information security. He has developed an algebraic modelling for a special class of combinatorial designs, and has also developed combinatorial testing for software methodologies for security targeting operating systems and web technologies. His publications include papers in applied discrete mathematics, software testing (in particular combinatorial testing) and security testing.


Bio

Bernhard received a bachelor’s and master’s degree (DI) in applied mathematics from TU Wien. Currently, he is a PhD student of informatics at TU Wien.
