I lead the Software Language Design and Engineering research program. Our mission is to enable software engineers to effectively design, implement, and apply domain-specific languages. We are doing research in three tracks:
Language engineering: investigate the automatic derivation of efficient, scalable, incremental compilers and usable IDEs from high-level, declarative language definitions
Semantics engineering: investigate the automatic verification of the consistency of language definitions in order to check properties such as type soundness and semantics preservation
Language design: investigate the systematic design of domain-specific software languages with an optimal tradeoff between expressivity, completeness, portability, coverage, and maintainability.
Syntax definition and parsing
Transformation and analysis
Integrated development environments
Abstractions for web programming
MetaBorg provides generic technology for allowing a host language (collective) to incorporate and assimilate external domains (cultures) in order to strengthen itself. The ease of implementing embeddings makes resistance futile.
