I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Programming Languages Group at Delft University of Technology, working with Eelco Visser.

Before that, I was a PhD in the PLanCompS project at Swansea University, where I was supervised by Peter Mosses.

Research interests

I am broadly interested in programming language semantics and type systems, and tools for specifying, reasoning about, and executing these. I use Coq for proof assistance.
