Dr Rumyana Neykova
Lecturer in Computer Science


Dr Rumyana Neykova is a lecturer at Brunel University London. She has a PhD from Imperial College London where she was also a fellow and a research associate. Her PhD focuses on development and applications of a type theory (called session types) for runtime verification of concurrent and distributed systems. Her body of work builds on the foundations of concurrency theory and type systems to offer practical, yet rigorous, verification techniques for distributed systems. She utilises type systems, formal methods, model checkers, compiling techniques, and code generation to help prevent communication faults (such as deadlocks and communication mismatches), increase software reliability, improve performance, assist the software development process, and enhance software understanding.
