Jorge A. Pérez

Assistant professor (tenure track - UD1) at the Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science, and AI, University of Groningen (NL).

My research group is Fundamental Computing.

I am also affiliated with:

Previously: Postdoc in Lisbon (with Luís Caires) and PhD Student in Bologna (with Davide Sangiorgi)

Research Interests

Rigorous programming models for concurrent, distributed, and communication-centric computation.

I am especially interested in:

  • Logical foundations of concurrency, most notably the Curry-Howard correspondence for Concurrency (CHoCo).
  • Verification and reasoning techniques: type systems (e.g., session types), logics, behavioral equivalences (e.g., bisimulation).
  • The expressive power of core programming languages for concurrency.
