About me

What I do?

I am a Phd student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Buffalo. My research interests lie in Programming Lanugages, Compilers and Language Runtimes, Real-Time systems. I am currently working with Dr.Lukasz Ziarek, who is also my advisor, on the Real-Time MLTON project. This project aims to create a real-time aware version of the MLTON compiler for the functional programming language Standard ML.
