Dr. Diego Garbervetsky

I am an Associate Professor at the Computer Science Department, School of Sciences, University of Buenos Aires. I am also a Researcher at the ICC/CONICET.

Currently I am also vice-Director of the Institute of Research in Computer Sciences(ICC).

I am interested in automatic program analysis. I am currently working in static analysis techniques aimed at resource usage analysis of Java-like programs and Smart Contracts, automated program verification, program understanding and validation.

  • We are hiring! Please contact me for PhD and Posdoc opportunities.


Current researh interests are in Program analysis (in particular):

  • Program understanding.
  • Testing and verification of program featuring rich protocols
  • Static analysis aimed at program verification of Java like programs.
  • Automatic symbolic resource analysis (gas consumption, dynamic memory, energy, etc)


My PhD Thesis: Parametric specifications of dynamic memory utilization, advisors: Victor Braberman (DC-FCEN-UBA) and Sergio Yovine (Verimag-CNRS/CONICET)
