Armaël Guéneau


portrait I am a permanent researcher in the Toccata team at Inria Saclay.
I was previously a post-doc at Aarhus University, working with Lars Birkedal in 2020-2021.
Before that, I completed my PhD in the Gallium team at Inria from 2016 to 2019, working with Arthur Charguéraud and François Pottier.

Research interests

My interests include formal proofs of programs and functional programming. I enjoy figuring out why complex code actually works and formalizing why it does indeed so; but I also like the process of building better abstractions to manage software complexity.

Other cool topics I have worked on in the past:

Tools and techniques

Most of my work involves a proof assistant (typically Coq), and a statically typed programming language such as OCaml. I am most used to program logics as a way to reason about programs; Separation Logic is my bread and butter. In particular, these days I am a user of the Iris Separation Logic framework.

I am generally curious about language implementation techniques, compilers, and the use of OCaml as a systems' programming language. I also have a sweet spot for automated decision procedures, in particular as a well-behaved helping hand for interactive mechanized proofs.

Dossier de candidature CR Inria/CNRS

À des fins de transparence, mes dossiers de candidatures à des postes de chargé de recherche. (J'ai candidaté début 2021, été auditionné au CNRS et à l'Inria, et finalement recruté cette année là par l'Inria dans l'équipe Toccata).
