I am interested in the domain of distributed systems. I am working on my thesis now, the subject is: “Extending Conflict-free Replicated Data Types Fault Models".

The thesis aims to extend the fault model of CRDTs to address Byzantine faults, rational behaviors, etc.This work aims at extending the fault model addressed in literature for CRDTs by suggestions considering Byzantine faults as it represents the strongest fault model, it exists in practice, and it has been studied very well in literature.
