Chandrakana Nandi

I am a graduate student in the PLSE group in Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington, Seattle. I am advised by Dan Grossman and Zachary Tatlock.


My current research is on developing and applying programming language techniques to build synthesis tools and fast compilers for computational geometry and fabrication.
