Mario Frank studied Computer Science at the Potsdam University from the year 2007 and finished his Diploma thesis in 2013. During his studies, he collaborated with the Corpus Linguistics Chair of the Humboldt University, the Potsdam University and the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. During these collaborations, he focused on the processing and transformation of corpora. In the latter years of his studies, he specialised on the automated processing of big formula sets, especially their reduction, with application of linguistic concepts for automated text summarisation and unification based graph search. As a result of his specialisation, he attended the CADE ATP Systems Competition twice in cooperation with Dr. Jens Otten.
After finishing his studies, he began his PhD Studies under supervision of Prof. Dr. Christoph Kreitz, head of the Theoretical Computer Science Chair, in the area of automated and interactive theorem proving. In 2014/2015, he applied the Junior Teaching Professionals Program of the Potsdam Graduate School and gained his first experience as lecturer and co-lecturer.
He worked as technical assistant for the projects "Reisen.UP" and "Beschaffung.UP" at the CIO division from 2014 to 2016. During this time, he supported the projects with his knowledge of complexity theory, logics, software and requirements engineering. He worked as research assistant at the Theoretical Computer Science Chair from 2016 until 30.06.2021. Since 01.07.2021, he works on the consortial project VERSECLOUD as research assistant at the Theoretical Computer Science Chair.
