Programming Languages Research Group

Welcome to the Programming Languages Research Group at the School of Engineering and Computer Science at Victoria University of Wellington!

The Programming Languages Research Group is one of the leading object-oriented programming languages research groups in Australasia with links to a large number of international institutions worldwide. We work on modern object-oriented languages, type systems, modelling, and formal methods and contribute to the development of both commercial programming languages and research ones. The programming languages currently developed at VUW include but are not limited to: Grace, Whiley, Wyvern, L42, DeepJava, and many others. We always seek new PhD students with the background in compilers or formal methods or type systems to join our group of 8+ academics and many Thesis and Honours students.

If you're interested in working with us on 400-level projects, MSc or PhD degrees, or as a summer student or visiting student, have a look at what we're working on and contact people you might who interest you.
