Research Interests

My research involves the use of abstract mathematical methods in the study of programming languages, and the formal representation of syntax for applications in computer verification and metaprogramming. More broadly, I am interested in modelling and formalisation of different application domains in proof assistants and functional languages, and uncovering the mathematical foundations of programming features such as reactivity, partial evaluation, and reflection.

Teaching Interests

I am the Director of Studies for IB Computer Science students and have been supervising undergraduates for theory-related courses for years. My goal is to teach students how to think abstractly, and save time and effort by recognising the common features and patterns arising in disparate fields of mathematics and computer science.
