researching unaugmented actual reality


Current projects include software and hardware support for general low-level dynamic analysis and data race freedom checking.

The ATLAS lab at Wellesley CS builds program analysis tools to find and prevent bugs without getting lost. We work across the implementation stack to develop program analysis support in programming languages, compilers, runtime systems, and computer architectures.
