Amin Bandali

Hi, I’m Amin Bandali. I’m a graduate student at WatForm at University of Waterloo, supervised by Dr. 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’m also interested in programming languages, theorem provers, and their type systems. You may wish to view my academic curriculum vitae.

On the side, I dabble in Lean and enjoy hacking on Elisp. I’m a Free Software activist, a GNU maintainer and webmaster, and an associate member of the FSF. I co-host the Emacs.el podcast with Daniel Gopar, and organize EmacsConf with help from many wonderful people. I am also a member of the Systems Committee for the CSC.

See my contact page for how to best reach me.
