Research Interests

My research interests are in applying programming language technology to improve the development, maintenance, and performance of software systems. I am particularly interested in the application of type theory to systems programming, in mechanization of the metatheory of programming languages, in type-oriented compilation strategies, in type-based certification of machine code, and in the design of practical, high- or low-level programming languages.


Most of my publications are available online.

"Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"

"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

-- Mark 12:29-31
