Message for Prospective PhD Students:

I am actively looking for PhD students who enjoy applying well-founded program analysis techniques to relevant problems that occur in real-world software. Prospective students should share my interest in implementing such techniques in practical tools, conducting thorough experimental evaluations, publishing results in top conferences in the areas of Programming Languages and Software Engineering, and making significant contributions to the open-source community.
For more information about my research, please take a look at my research page for some examples of current projects, or read some of my recent publications. Please send me an e-mail if you would like to talk about how our research interests might align.
