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.
