My work focuses on the definition of
multi-paradigm computation models and associated programming
languages, and the development of tools for the
specification, analysis and verification of complex systems, such as
biological systems, telecommunications or mobile software
Main research topics:
Programming languages: Types, Semantics, Security.
Rewrite-based computation models: term and graph rewriting, lambda-calculus, interaction nets.
Software Modelling and Applied Logic Group
Current and recent research projects:
Dynamic Access Control, funded by EOARD
PORGY - Interactive Analysis and Visualisation of Port Graph Rewriting Systems
INRIA Associated team programme (GRAVITE- INRIA Bordeaux)
Dependent types for nominal terms, Royal Society International Joint Project (King's College London, University ORT Uruguay).
A logical framework based on a nominal dependent type system is described here (comments welcome).
Computational Applications of Nominal Sets (CANS), funded by the EPSRC.
Implementing Access Control Mechanisms using Rewriting Techniques, EU FP6 (Marie-Curie).
