My general interest is in Programming Languages (PLs). I like both its theory and practice. But, what I like even more is reconciling the two.

My history in PL research can be divided into four major categories: formal semantics of lazy evaluation, generic programming, language mechanisation, and distributed systems programming.

  • Formalisation of the ΔQ Systems Development Paradigm: In this paradigm, performance is a first-class citizen throughout the entire SDLC. ΔQ values are improper random variables (described by their CDFs) that represent quality attenuation. This research is funded by IOHK and is in close collaboration with PNSol.
  • Co-Evolution of Programming Languages (Co-Evo): A programming language can mean many different things to its users: a formal semantics, compiler toolchain (lexer, type checker, interpreter, etc.), its IDE, analysis tools (static analaysis, memory footprinting, etc.), and more. Co-Evo collectively studies the co-evolution of those altogether. This project is funded by the Research Council of Norway and is hosted by UiB.

I am always interested in supervising theses on topics that fall in my research interests. Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have a topic in mind or would like to know of those I already have. N.B. The matter of funding comes separately.
