- Developing methods for non-intrusive instrumentation and analysis of software.
- Focus on application at the CMS Experiment, and further afield, at CERN.
- Runtime Verification, in particular for automated performance analysis.
One of the main results of my research is the VyPR tool (see below).
VyPR - a prototype framework for automated performance analysis of Python programs and web services
VyPR, one of the main results of my research, is a growing project at the CMS Experiment at CERN. You can see VyPR-related news below.

In line with my research, I supervise CERN Students (Summer and Erasmus) on software performance analysis projects. Information on the summer student programme, including how to apply, can be found here.
My students include:
|Student||University||Project title||Talk and Report|
|Per Sunde||University of Oslo||Timed Pushdown Automata for Offline Runtime Verification||Talk PDF|
|Marta Han||University of Zagreb||Development of Analysis Tools for VyPR||Talk PDF|
|Jurgis Rancevas||University of Vilnius||Automated Release Validation of the CMS Experiment's Conditions Upload Service|
Allowing students to see the cutting-edge of the subjects that they study, so that they can see exactly where they can go with what they study, is vital.
Details of my involvement in Computer Science outreach will appear here.
