Quang Loc Le

About Quang Loc Le

Loc joined Teesside University in 2017 as a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science. His research is about developing novel and practical techniques to help improve the quality of critical software and make program verification accessible for end users. Loc is particularly interested in theory and practice of automated program reasoning using Separation Logic. Recently, Loc broadens his research interests to study String Logic and Software Security.

Loc completed his PhD in Computing at National University of Singapore (2014). His PhD thesis explored a generic technique for shape analysis using Separation Logic. Before joining Teesside, Loc did two post-doctoral research fellows at National University of Singapore (January 2015 – November 2015) and Singapore University of Technology and Design (November 2015 – May 2017).
