Biography

I am a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the School of Computing at the University of Glasgow, where I am a member of the Glasgow Parallelism Group (GPG) as part of the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS). I maintain strong links with the Formal Methods Research Group in Formal Analysis, Theory & Algorithms (FATA) Section through membership of the Programming Languages (PL) Theme.

My core role at Glasgow is to investigate the construction and application of structural and behavioural type-systems for hardware design languages. My other research interests are in the general type-driven development of systems using dependent types, session types, and algebraic effect handlers.

Before I came to Glasgow I was a Research Fellow (and Teaching Fellow) at the School of Computer Science at the University of St Andrews. I completed both my PhD and undergraduate degree at the University of St Andrews, and in between these degrees I was a Kerckhoffs Master student at the Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen in the Netherlands.

Research interests

 

Generally speaking my research interests involve making Systems Engineering more TyDe: Type-Driven. Today's systems will utilise a specification that is separate from the implementation, and their deployment requires that we verify that implementations adhere to specifications through external processes. There is a fundamental separation-of-concerns between system: specification—by domain experts; verification—by verification experts; creation—by software engineers; use—by end users; and certification—by auditors. Such a disconnect leads to issues over system security and safety by allowing errors to be present at various points during a system's lifecycle.

I am interested in how we can combine state-of-the-art advances in programming language theory, namely type-systems & functional programming, and use these advances to fundamentally change the way we engineer systems and interlink our engineering concerns together. I believe that if we are to ever build trustworthy systems, we must make machine checkable specifications an intrinsic aspect of the system through adoption of type-driven approaches.

By doing so we can: reduce mismatches between a system’s specification and implementation; increase productivity of system creation and verification; and fundamentally enhance system trustworthiness. This will impact both Society and The Economy by guaranteeing that our systems are trustworthy because our engineering practises are themselves: Type Driven!

Specifically, I am interested in bettering system design and construction through applications of:

  • functional programming;
  • formal verification;
  • mathematically informed programming;
  • dependent types;
  • sub-structural typing (quantitative, resource-dependent, session); and
  • algebraic effect handlers.

There are more topics (Privacy and Cryptography) that I am interested in, but the above keeps me busy for now!
