You have stumbled upon the personal website of Jared Roesch.

I’m a third year PhD student in the PLSE group at the University of Washington. I am advised by Zach Tatlock, and frequently collaborate with Leonardo de Moura. I am interested in designing new tools for building and reasoning about critical software.

I am currently working on a couple projects.

One focuses on a design for constructing verified compilers which execute in adversarial environments, in particular one for eBPF in the Linux kernel. I am also working on various pieces of the Lean programming language and theorem prover, including native compilation, sledgehammer style tactics, and various development tools including editor modes.

When time permits I attempt to contribute to Rust.

I was previously at the University of California Santa Barbara where I was a member of the PL Lab and the ArchLab.

In my professional life I worked at the now defunct Zentopy on a cloud file system, at Invoca on distributed systems and infrastructure, and Mozilla Research on the Rust programing language.

In my personal life I grew up in sunny California and have spent most of my life there. I enjoy cooking, listening, writing and playing music, reading, type theory, hacking, coffee, and sleep (when I can).

I am always interested in working with motivated undergraduates who are interested in verification, compiler hacking, type theory, and more. I am always execited to here from people who are interested in doing research.
