Dr Ornela Dardha
- Lecturer (School of Computing Science)
I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. Within the School, I am leader of Programming Languages theme and I am Glasgow site leader of the European RISE Action Behavioural Application Program Interfaces (BehAPI).
I was Co-Investigator (May 2018 - May 2020), and before that postdoctoral researcher (Jan 2014 - Apr 2018) within the UK EPSRC programme grant From Data Types to Session Types: A Basis for Concurrency and Distribution (ABCD).
I obtained my PhD (2014) in computing science from the University of Bologna, Italy, under the supervision of Davide Sangiorgi. My PhD thesis Type Systems for Distributed Programs: Components and Sessions won the prize for the Best Italian PhD Thesis in Theoretical Computer Science 2015, awarded by the Italian Chapter of EATCS. I obtained my BSc (2008) and MSc (2010) in computing science both summa cum laude (110/110 e lode), from Sapienza University of Rome, Italy.
You can find more information about me on my personal website.
