David Parker's research focuses on verification: formal techniques for checking that systems function correctly. In particular, he is interested in quantitative verification, which focuses on the analysis of systems with probabilistic and real-time behaviour.

Dr Parker's work spans the development of new theory, algorithms and tools for this area, as well as investigating its applicability to a wide range of areas, including biology and security. He also leads the development of the probabilistic model checking tool PRISM.
