News and Events

  1. Lab Introduction (in Chinese): flyers and ppt slides, for students who are interested in joining our lab.

Research

My research interests are in the area of programming languages and formal methods. In particular, I am interested in developing theories, programming languages and tools to build formally certified system software, with rigorous guarantees of safety and correctness.

Here is my CV.
