Short Bio: Darko Marinov is an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His main research interests are in Software Engineering, in particular improving software quality; functional testing for sequential, parallel, and distributed software; regression testing; and performance testing. He has a lot of fun looking for software bugs. He published over 70 conference papers, winning five ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper awards, one ACM SIGSOFT Impact Paper Award (2012), one ASE Most Influential Paper Award (2015), and one CHI Best Paper Award (2017). He received an NSF CAREER award (2008), an Illinois CAS Beckman Fellowship (2010-2011), an Illinois DCS C.W.

Previously: Darko was an Assistant Professor until August 2011. He obtained his Ph.D. from MIT in 2005, advised by Martin Rinard. As a Ph.D. student, Darko co-led the MulSaw project with Sarfraz Khurshid, and the two have collaborated ever since, with at least one joint paper per year in DBLP since 2001. Darko obtained his S.M. in Computer Science from MIT for work on Credible Compilation and his B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from the School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Belgrade, Yugoslavia. His first research experience was at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1995, when he visited as an undergrad through the (Yugoslav Student) Summer Program.
