Benjamin P. Wood

Anchor Point Assistant Professor in Computer Science

My research develops tools for analyzing software to check critical safety properties and find or prevent bugs.


In general, I am fascinated by the expression and implementation of computation. I work across the implementation stack to develop program analysis support in programming languages, compilers, runtime systems, and computer architectures. I enjoy teaching courses spanning these same layers of computation. Outside of computer science, I enjoy self-powered travel through wild places.
