I am a Professor in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow.
I belong to the
Formal Analysis, Theory and Algorithms Section ( FATA)
My research involves using mathematical techniques to analyse complex software systems. These systems include autonomous vehicles such as UAVs, robots, and telecommunications systems. We develop models which we can analyse using logical properties to define the sort of behaviour we expect the system to have. This allows us to expose hidden errors that could affect the performance, efficiency and sometimes safety of a system. The particular technique I use is a type of formal verification called
I am keen to apply our theoretical techniques to real world problems. Please contact me if you are a researcher in an applied field (e.g. chemistry, biology, ...), have a search problem, and are interested in collaborating.
I also welcome applications from high quality potential research students who wish to undertake research in formal methods, specifically in model checking and related areas, or in symmetry-reduced graph search (email me if you are interested in submitting a proposal).
