My main research area is the design of compilers with a particular focus on code generation. The aim is to explore the feasibility and usability of new intermediate representations for the optimization and code generation phases of a compiler. My research involves:

  • Languages and compilers, in particular for functional languages
  • Compiling using data-dependence graphs such as the Regionalized Value State Dependence Graph
  • Code generation for heterogeneous computer systems
  • Vectorization using data-dependence graphs
