Paolo G. Giarrusso
I am a Ph.D. student in the Programming Languages and Software Engineering research group at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of University of Marburg, Germany.
Links about me
Participated in development of:
- UserModeLinux, a working project to run a virtualized Linux kernel as a normal process without hardware support, included in the mainline kernel, developed with Jeff Dike and others.
- Jext, a text editor for programmers, developed with Romain Guy.
Designed and initiated:
- Micropython, a fast interpreter for a subset of Python, 2-3x faster than CPython, in the course on Virtual Machines by Lars Bak, together with another colleague.
- A compiler for a substantial subset of Java in the Compilation course in Aarhus University, with two colleagues.
My current research interests revolve around programming language theory and practice, study of domain-specific embedded languages (DSELs), and applications of these to distributed and database-based systems, in the setting of modern functional languages, especially Scala and Haskell, which are better suited for DSL embedding. In the recent past, I have worked in the field of distributed systems and programming language implementation, and I still have an interest in operating systems.
More in general, I am passionate both about mathematics, especially discrete mathematics, and dirty and concrete hacking and programming. I like thinking of myself as a good programmer in the first place.
