Research
My research makes use of techniques from category theory,
mathematical logic and type theory to advance the foundations of
programming language semantics and theorem proving systems. I have a
longstanding interest in the semantics and logic of names, locality
and binding. My aim is to develop mathematical models and methods
which aid language design and the development of formal logics for
specifying and reasoning about programs. I am particularly
interested in higherorder typed programming languages and in
dependently typed logics.
