I am working on static analysis for the verification of semantic properties of programs. My main focus is on abstract interpretation and more specifically on symbolic abstractions:
- Static Analysis of embedded, safety critical software
the Astrée project: static analysis, for proving the absence of runtime errors in safety critical embedded software.
Commercial support by AbsInt (see here for more info).
- Shape analysis
- Certified Compilation
the Lcertify translation validator
- Abstract Interpretation
- Slicing, dependence semantics
- Verification of Spreadsheet Applications
- MemCAD static analyzer, as part of the MemCAD ERC Project.
- Astrée static analyzer.
- LCertify translation validator library.
- VeriAMOS ANR Project.
