Associate Professor

I study the art and science of program verification and synthesis. I'm a member of madPL, an awesome research group at the forefront of programming languages research. I joined Wisconsin in 2015 after receiving my PhD from UToronto working with Marsha Chechik. I'm always looking for ambitious students.

I'm also a visiting academic at AWS (I know, hilarious).

S22 CS 704: Principles of programming languages

馃崏 The name  路  兀賵爻 丕賱亘乇睾賵孬賷

My first name rhymes with house—i.e., pronounced ouse. Aws is an ancient Arabic word for wolf. The first recorded mention of Aws that I'm aware of is in a Graeco-Arabic inscription.

My last name is pronounced Al·b蓹r·go蜑o·t膿 (or B蓹r·go蜑o·t膿). Albarghouthi is a Palestinian family from the village of Deir Ghassaneh, about 20 miles north of Jerusalem and east of Jaffa.


To my knowledge, my PhD thesis (p. 77) is the first CS thesis to cite Jay Z
