I'm a 3rd-year PhD student at UC San Diego, advised by Sorin Lerner and studying PL/HCI with the Programming Systems group.

I'm currently working on program synthesis. In addition, I'm also interested in interactive synthesis, diagrams, constraint systems, program semantics, garbage collection, functional languages and their implementations, and static analysis/abstract interpretation.

Prior to UCSD, I obtained a BS in Computer Science/Mathematics from Harvey Mudd College.

My email address is jsarraci@cs.ucsd.edu and I attempt to answer promptly.

Outside of research, I help run a digital dental laboratory, listen to loud music, lift weights, look at beaches, and eat food.
