Roy Dyckhoff headed the research activity at St Andrews in computational logic. His and his students' work comprised the development of proof assistants and theorem-provers for various logics, the exploitation of various logics for problem specification or as programming languages, and the investigation of their proof theory and semantics. He retired in September 2011, and thus is no longer inviting PhD applications; but continues as an active researcher. Juliana Bowles works on formal foundations of object-oriented specification languages in the context of large-scale distributed systems. Her main interests include true-concurrent logics for describing dynamic aspects of large distributed object systems, logics of knowledge and belief, and applications of category theory. Ian Gent works on search algorithms, experimental methods in CS and AI and constraint satisfaction problems. Vladimir Komendantsky (no longer at the University) works on the representation of extended regular expression languages using dependent type theory and the formal verification of properties of functions manipulating such languages.
