I am a research associate in the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science, one institute of the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. My research centers on type systems for functional programming languages. In particular, I study:
I work with Phil Wadler and Sam Lindley on the ABCD project, which studies the role of session types in safe concurrent and distributed programming. I have contributed to the design and implementation of session types for the Links programming language. Most recently, I was a Ph.D. student in the computer science department at Portland State University, advised by Mark P. Jones. As part of the High Assurance Systems Programming project, I contributed to the design of the Habit programming language, particularly its class system, and to the development of the Habit compiler, particularly its typechecking and desugaring components.
