PhD Position

I have funding available for a PhD student starting in Sep 2017, in the general area of functional programming and/or software testing. Contact me if you are interested.


Research Interests

I belong to the following research groups:

I believe many problems in software engineering can and can only be solved by better programming languages, and better ways of using them. A recurring theme of my research is to guarantee correctness of program properties through construction, reasoning and testing. Functional languages with many of their distinctive features are well suited for the task and have been the main target and carrier of my research. Some of my recent topics involve designing languages for bidirectional transformations and property-based testing. You might be interested in this funded PhD project.
