PhD Project Summary

I am in the PLAS research group, studying Weak Memory behaviours with Mark Batty.

I'm currently working on an Alloy model of Alan Jeffrey's Event Structure Memory Model with the intention of extending it to support C/C++11 memory behaviours and then comparing it to other existing memory models.



I have taught CO656: Internet of Things this term. If you're a student with questions about the module, please email my staff address: .
