Research

My research interests include programming languages, compilers, tools, and methodologies for constructing safe, secure, and efficient systems.

I am always looking to recruit talented and enthusiastic students at all levels—PhD, Master's, and Bachelor's—to work with me on research. If you're interested in programming languages, compilers, or software engineering, please .

Here is a list of small research projects that would make good Bachelor's or Master's projects.
