Thomas Gilray

Computer Scientist
Asst. Professor at UAB CS

My research is in tunable static analysis—mainly of higher-order, functional languages. I also work on compiling, parallelizing, and incrementalizing such analyses, and on their applications—software verification, optimization, and auditing. More broadly, my interests include semantics, language design, compilers and their implementation, safety and verification, parallelism and high-performance logic solvers. Contact me if you have an idea which intersects with my research or broader interests and want to discuss it. I am looking for students!
