Looking for PhD Students

I am hiring PhD students. Broadly, I do applied programming languages theory. My current interests are in web browsers and floating-point accuracy.

In web browsers, I am interested in both 1) dramatically speeding up browsers; and 2) analyzing the applications that run on browsers, or tailoring the browser to the application. I am particularly interested in layout, the DOM API, and networking: the less-studied parts.

In floating-point accuracy, I am interested in developing tools to improve accuracy and performance for both small and large numerical programs. I am particular interested in novel numeric representations, optimizing library functions, and scaling error analysis.

If you are interested in these topics, please get in touch and apply to Utah. I am always happy to talk to potential students.
