2 Research Interests

My research focuses on the primary interface between humans and computers, namely the programming language with a strong focus on parallel programming. Future computers will need increasingly more power to deliver high performance. The main solution to this problem is to expose explicit parallelism in the hardware to programmers. However, expressing parallelism in a safe and natural way is very challenging, especially when high efficiency is needed. High-level languages are necessary to make parallelism available to domain-experts and main-stream programmers, whereas low-level programming is needed for efficiency and performance. My research tries to satisfy both requirements.
