Pete Manolios is a professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University and leads the computer-aided reasoning group. What guides his research is the vision that formal methods can be used to revolutionize the design, analysis, and implementation of highly reliable, robust, and scalable systems in a variety of important application areas, including large component-based software systems, hardware systems, aerospace systems, and big data analytics. His group has been funded by DARPA, NASA, NSF, Boeing, BAE, AFRL, IBM, and SRC. Additionally, the group has developed several publicly available tools, including ACL2s, BAT, CoBaSA/Inez, 3SPIN, 3Murphi, and the Bloom Filter Calculator. Manolios is also an active consultant in the area of safety critical systems and DO-178C certification.

Manolios’ leadership positions in computer science and his research field of formal methods include serving as an associate editor of ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems, as a program and general co-chair for FMCAD, as a co-chair for ACL2, as a member of the steering committees for FMCAD and ACL2, and as a member of the IFIP working group 1.9/2.15 on Verified Software.
