Main research problem is how to ensure that inherently concurrent, highly distributed, software systems behave correctly. The focus is on the development of techniques, program constructions, and tools that help creating safe and well-behaved systems, provably providing correctness guarantees. The toolbox used includes static analysis of source code, capturing defects before deployment, with decidable, low complexity, property-driven, proof systems, using behavioural descriptions of programs.
