Amin Bandali's Personal Site

Hi, I'm Amin. I am currently a graduate student at the Waterloo Formal Methods group at the University of Waterloo, supervised by Nancy Day. The main goal of my research is improving software and systems reliability through application of formal methods.

My research at WatForm focuses on formal logic, model checking, and verification. I am also interested in programming languages, proof assistants, and their type systems.

On the side, I enjoy hacking on elisp and guile. I am a GNU maintainer and webmaster, a free software activist, and an associate member of the Free Software Foundation. I'm the co-host of the Emacs.el podcast with Daniel Gopar, and the chief organizer of the EmacsConf conference. I'm also a member of the Systems Committee of the Computer Science Club of the University of Waterloo.
