Current Research

My current research concerns the development of techniques to automatically learn the dynamic data structure behaviour in a program by analysing traces of its execution. For example, when considering a program that employs a linked list to implement a queue, we would like to automatically learn information such as the shape of the data structure (singly linked list), its behaviour (only operations consistent with a queue are permitted) and any relevant additional information (such as whether the list is implemented using a header node). The information determined from such an analysis will be used to inform formal verification, understand legacy code and aid in reverse engineering.
