Jan 2019PLDI'19 accepted my PhD student's paper Verified Compilation on Verified Hardware



My research focuses on program verification, interactive theorem proving and, particularly, the challenges of making interactive proofs more automatic / scale to real code. This webpage provides a brief introduction to my research:

My most recent work has focused on CakeML, which is an ML-style language with a formal semantics and a growing ecosystem of proofs and tools that support construction of verified applications. As far as I know, the CakeML compiler is the first verified compiler to have been bootstrapped.

Below is a popular science video about my research. The video was made by Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research.
