Manuel Rigger is a postdoctoral researcher in the Advanced Software Technologies (AST) Lab at ETH Zurich, mentored by Zhendong Su. He is working on programming language implementation, software reliability, and systems. In his recent work, he has been focusing on automatically testing Database Management Systems, part of which he found over 400 bugs in widely-used systems such as SQLite, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MariaDB, and CockroachDB. He completed his PhD at Johannes Kepler University Linz, mentored by Hanspeter Mössenböck, where he worked on the safe and efficient execution of unsafe languages (project Sulong). Part of his work was integrated into Oracle’s GraalVM to support the execution of LLVM IR on this platform.
