A new blog, like an empty canvas, is full of possibilities. It is not an accident that the creation of this blog coincides with the start of my time as a PhD student at the Software Engineering Research Group of the Delft University of Technology. For the next four years I’ll be studying declarative techniques for static analysis of domain specific languges under supervision of Eelco Visser. I’m very excited to see what I can achieve in that time. Of course I hope to grow in academic skill, but I’m also looking forward to meeting and collaborating with smart people from all over the world. Most of what I plan to write here will be about to my own research, or about interesting work of others. Somewhere in the next month I want to kick off with a post about my master thesis work, which is also the basis for my PhD research. Until then!
