I like 

  • declarative programming languages like Haskell and Curry
  • type-safe client-side programming with PureScript
  • working with the proof assistant Coq
I am currently
  • trying to formalise properties of functional (logic) programs with Coq
  • investigating similarities between functional logic and probabilistic programming languages
  • writing simple (and pretty) programs to solve puzzles with Curry
Verifying Effectful Haskell Programs in Coq (preprint)(Haskell Symposium '19, acceptance ratio 13/25)
Implementing a Library for Probabilistic Programming using Non-strict Non-determinism (arXiv)(TPLP)
One Monad To Prove Them All (arXiv) (<Programming>'19)
Probabilistic Functional Logic Programming (preprint) (PADL'18, , acceptance ratio 13/23, Best Student Paper)
All Sorts of Permutations (preprint) (ICFP'16, acceptance ratio 37/115)
