Mira Mezini was elected member of the German Academy of Science and Engineering (acatech) in 2016. She has received various awards for her research, including IBM Eclipse Innovation Awards (2005 and 2006), a Google Research Award (2017) and the German IT Security Award (2014). In 2012 Mezini received an Advanced Grant of 2.3 million euros from the European Research Council (ERC), the EU's highest endowed research award. She is a member of various scientific bodies, including the Informatics Review Board of the German Research Foundation, the international START / Wittgenstein Jury of the Austrian Science Fund and the Executive Committee of SIGPLAN – Special Interest Group for Programming Languages – of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). She is the science representative in the Quadriga of the National Cyber Security Pact and was appointed to the Identification Commission of the ERC Scientific Council by the EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth in 2020.

Current research topics:

  • Programming paradigms and languages for resilient decentralized data-intensive software systems
  • Code intelligence: learning program analyses for automated software quality (e.g., discovering security vulnerabilities data protection violations, API misuses, etc.)
  • Development methods and declarative languages for AI software systems
