Software Development, Programming Principles, Tools, and Languages

Improving quality, efficiency, software trustworthiness


Our research in software development spans all aspects of making developers more productive and software more trustworthy. It includes programming-language design, compilers, specification and verification, development environments and tools, runtime environments, formal models of systems, performance monitoring and optimization, security and privacy, software analytics, and quality improvement.

We work on tools, languages, and methodologies to increase dramatically the productivity of software development. We are interested in analysis tools for existing software and in asking questions about how the software of the future should be designed and developed.
