About Me

My name is Paul Leger (but I am chilean!). I'm a PhD, which was guided by Prof. Eric Tanter at Pleiad lab and Center for Advanced Research in Education CIAE). In addition, I am an assistant professor at Católica del Norte University

Short Research Description

Although the name of my thesis, Opening Up Trace-Based Mechanisms, defines my keywords such as Trace-Based Mechanisms like Tracematches and Open Implementations, I am also interested in different topics related to programming languages such as the modularity, abstractions, and different approaches (from the functional programming to aspect-oriented programming).
