I am a tenure-track researcher at MPI-SWS. I got my BA (2004) and PhD (2008) from the University of Cambridge. Before joining MPI-SWS in October 2010, I was a postdoc at Microsoft Research and at the University of Cambridge.
Research I am broadly interested in programming languages and verification with a focus on the following areas:
