Name: Bernardo Toninho

Bio: I am interested in the application of language-based techniques to the development of more robust and safer concurrent and distributed systems. More specifically, I work within the realm of (substructural) type theory, such as those based on Linear Logic and Session Types, and their applications to concurrent programming. I am also interested in using type and logic-based techniques to verify concurrent programs in real languages such as Go, Rust and Scala.
