Dr. Jonathan Aldrich
I work at the intersection of programming languages and software engineering. My research explores how the way we express software affects our ability to engineer software at scale. A particular theme of much of my work is improving software quality and programmer productivity through better ways to express structural and behavioral aspects of software design within source code.
I have contributed to object-oriented typestate verification, modular reasoning techniques for aspects and stateful programs, and new object-oriented language models. For my work specifying and verifying architecture, I received a 2006 NSF CAREER award and the 2007 Dahl-Nygaard Junior Prize (press release, article). Right now I'm excited to be working on the design of Wyvern, a new modularly extensible programming language.
