Michael D. Ernst is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Washington. He is also the specification lead for JSR 308, which makes Java’s annotation system more expressive.
Ernst’s research aims to make software more reliable, more secure, and easier (and more fun!) to produce. His primary technical interests are in software engineering and related areas, including programming languages, type theory, security, program analysis, bug prediction, testing, and verification. Ernst’s research combines strong theoretical foundations with realistic experimentation, with an eye to changing the way that software developers work.
Dr. Ernst was previously a tenured professor at MIT, and before that a researcher at Microsoft Research.
