Research
I am interested in all aspects of programming language semantics, be
they operational or denotational (or somewhere between the two). My
research makes use of techniques from mathematical logic, type theory
and category theory to advance the foundations of programming language
semantics. The aim is to develop mathematical models and methods
which aid language design and the development of formal logics for
specifying and reasoning about programs, with an emphasis on higher
order, typed programming languages, such as ML and Haskell. I have a
longstanding interest in the semantics and logic of names, locality
and binding.
