I am a first year PhD student at the University of California, San Diego working with Nadia Polikarpova. I believe robust type systems and better interfaces to programming will be the most fruitful avenues to making fewer mistakes. I want to make it harder to write bad code.
To this end, I’m currently working on program synthesis. My projects are Hoogle+, a type-driven, component-based synthesis tool for Haskell; and, I’m also working to extend Synquid with examples to make synthesis with refinement types a little less painful.
