Marijn Heule

Marijn Heule

Carnegie Mellon University

Marijn Heule is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His research focuses on solving hard combinatorial problems in areas such as formal verification, number theory, and extremal combinatorics, specifically by further developing the theory and practice of satisfiability (SAT) solving. He is known for several breakthrough results in this domain, such as solving the Boolean Pythagorean Triples problem, Keller’s conjecture, and the Empty Hexagon problem. Professor Heule has won Best Paper Awards at IJCAR, CADE, TACAS, and SAT. He is one of the editors of the Handbook of Satisfiability, the main reference work in the field.
