Adam Chlipala's picture


Adam Chlipala finished his BS in computer science at Carnegie Mellon in 2003 and his PhD in computer science at UC Berkeley in 2007.  Before starting at MIT, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard.  His research focuses on applications of formal logic to software development and analysis.  One specialty area is building machine-checked mathematical proofs of correctness for programming tools like compilers and runtime systems, and he has a general interest in the pragmatics of machine-checked mathematics.  He also works in the design and implementation of functional programming languages, as in the example of his new domain-specific programming language Ur/Web, which brings strong mathematical guarantees to the world of Web applications.
