Research and Scholarship

My areas of scholarship include programming-language semantics, logics of programs, formal methods, and information-assurance and computer-science education.

I am particularly interested in the use of mathematics and logic to reason about complex program behavior, such as security and access control (my current work) or fairness and concurrency (my Ph.D. work at Carnegie Mellon University, long long ago). This theme threads through both my scholarly work and the courses that I teach.


Educational Activities

I am the program director for the Certificate of Advanced Study in Systems Assurance (CASSA).
