The Marsland Fellowship in Information Technology provides a visible, enduring legacy for the Marsland family’s support of information technology at the University of Waterloo. The fellowship also provides a key element in supporting the expansion and maintenance of the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science.
Current Marsland Fellow
Professor Lhoták's research interests are generally in the area of programming languages, compilers, and program analysis, with a specific focus on object-oriented languages. Program analysis has long been used to generate efficient code, and it is increasingly being used in software engineering tools. These applications require precise and efficient program analyses. The increased modularity enabled by object-oriented languages makes interprocedural analysis necessary for precise results. Therefore, Professor Lhoták is working on making precise interprocedural analyses efficient enough to be practical.
