Research Interests

My research interests lie in the area of programming languages. For more information and an up to date list of my publications please see my personal web page.


I am originally from Moscow, Russia with a background in Mathematics. I have completed my PhD in programming languages in 2006 and took up a job as a Lecturer in Software Engineering at Victoria University of Wellington. During my studies I took short breaks to work as a Visiting Researcher at Purdue University, and Software Engineer at two Wellington start-ups. I spent 2013 on sabbatical at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA, USA.
