Alexa VanHattum

Assistant Professor of Computer Science


My interests span programming languages and computer systems.

I use lightweight formal methods to improve the reliability and efficiency of low-level computer systems. I enjoy collaborating with industry groups and open-source software projects.

I love demystifying systems programming for undergraduate students—I am excited to work with Wellesley research assistants and to teach courses across computer systems, formal methods, compilers, and programming languages.
