Main content

The objective of our research is to create techniques and tools for the development of high-quality software, in particular, provably correct object-oriented programs. To achieve this goal, we study and apply a variety of approaches including program specification and verification, advanced type systems, static analysis, and testing. We are particularly interested in combining different approaches to develop techniques that are powerful and practical.
