Dr. Oliver Bračevac

Programming Languages Research Engineer @ Galois, Inc.
Former Postdoc @ Purdue CS and PurPL.

[Research Statement]    [Teaching Statement]

My general interests are programming languages and compilers. I explore new ways of programming complex systems, in order to make them simpler, safer, more robust, and more scalable.

I am a strong proponent of functional programming and formal methods, and a logician at heart.
