Personal information


Jonathan Aldrich is Associate Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the director of CMU's undergraduate minor program in Software Engineering, and teaches courses in programming languages, software engineering, and program analysis for quality and security. In addition, he serves as a consultant on architecture, design, process, and legal issues in the software industry. Dr. Aldrich joined the CMU faculty after completing a Ph.D. at the University of Washington and a B.S. at Caltech.

Aldrich's research contributions include verifying the correct implementation of an architectural design, modular formal reasoning about code, and API protocol specification and verification. For his work on software architecture, Aldrich received a 2006 NSF CAREER award and the 2007 Dahl-Nygaard Junior Prize, given annually for a significant technical contribution to object-oriented programming. Aldrich was one of 12 computer science researchers nationwide who were selected to the 2007 DARPA Computer Science Study Group.


My research centers on programming languages and type systems that are informed by software engineering considerations. My current work focuses on support for typestate-oriented programming and concurrency in the design of the Plaid language.
