Research Overview

I am interested in developing software abstractions, tools, and infrastructures to support the governance of sociotechnical systems of autonomous parties. To this end, I am developing abstractions for norms, accountability, and protocols, and applying them toward the design of sociotechnical systems. My philosophical stance is summed up as interaction-oriented software engineering or IOSE and has applications in areas as broad and diverse as ethical AI, Internet of Things, security, and blockchains.
