I am Pritam Choudhury. I am a researcher in type systems and programming language design (Google Scholar Profile). My research focuses on graded type systems and their applications. In my doctoral dissertation, I used graded type systems to analyze linearity and dependency in programming languages. Linearity and dependency analyses are particularly useful in memory management, language-based security, multi-stage compilation and code optimization. I completed my PhD at the University of Pennsylvania in the summer of 2023. After graduation, I taught as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Haverford College during the academic year 2023-24. Currently, I am looking for industry/academic positions in software engineering and programming language design roles.

Before starting my PhD, I worked as an MPhil student in Advanced Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. My research there focussed on the constructive formalization of nominal sets in Agda.

Before I got interested in Computer Science, I studied Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. My final year project was in detection of bad data and false data in power systems.

Other than academics, I like hiking, poetry and martial arts. I consider myself lucky to be a part of the Penn TaeKwonDo Club.

I am looking for industry/academic positions starting summer/fall 2024. If you are interested in my research or want to know more about my work and expertise, please feel free to contact me.
