Picture of Simon Spies

Hi, I'm Simon Spies.

I am a 1st year PhD student with Derek Dreyer at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems and Saarland Informatics Campus.

My research interests are in program semantics, formal software verification, type systems, programming language design, type theory, and logic. At the moment, I am working on transfinitely step-indexed semantic models and program logics.

I obtained my Bachelor's degree at Saarland University and my Master's degree at the University of Cambridge.

You can reach me at last name at mpi-sws.org.
