About

I am a postdoctoral researcher and sessional instructor at the School of Computing Science at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada.

Before, I was a postdoctoral researcher and teaching assistant at the Knowledge-Based Systems Group headed by Professor G. Lakemeyer, PhD at RWTH Aachen University.

I worked in the VERITAS project, which was part of the Hybrid Reasoning for Intelligent Systems research unit, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

Before that, I worked in the PLATAS project, also funded by the DFG.

My research interests include epistemic logics, reasoning about action and change, planning, and verification.

The ß in my last name is a German letter that is roughly pronounced like "ss" (as in pass), and not to be confused with a "b" or the Greek letter beta (β). An alternative spelling is "Classen".
