## About meI am a PhD student at the Saarbrücken Graduate School of Computer Science and the Programming Systems Lab. I did my Bachelor's Thesis on formal and constructive computability theory and a Research Immersion Lab on verified extraction from Coq at the chair. I obtained my Master's degree from the University of Cambridge with a thesis on the expressive power of effect handlers and monadic reflection. Currently, we are trying to establish the strong invariance thesis for a certain kind of lambda calculus with the long-term goal of using this calculus as a formal basis for Complexity theory. In order to do so, I am working on a formalisation of Turing machines in Coq. |
