My research is in semantics of programming languages. I am a member of the Church project, a Boston-based research group on foundations, design principles and implementation techniques of programming languages and related systems. The project is named after Alonzo Church, the inventor of the lambda-calculus. My work focuses on proving meaning preservation of program optimizations, in particular of cross-module transformations.
My interests also include e-commerce, computer security and Java Web technologies. Some of this material was included in the class Introduction to E-commerce.
