My research interests cover programming languages, parallel computation, foundations of programming, and symbolic computation. My focus area is the implementation of parallel functional languages. For more detail, see my page on research interests and vision or my biography.
SICSA MultiCore Challenge
I am coordinating the SICSA MultiCore Challenge an effort in comparing different languages/systems for parallel computation on (networks of) multi-cores, by implementing several benchmarks applications.
