The past two issues of Haskell Weekly News <https://haskellweekly.news/>
have mentioned research from some of the same people:

Total Haskell is reasonable Coq <https://arxiv.org/abs/1711.09286>

We would like to use the Coq proof assistant to mechanically verify
properties of Haskell programs. To that end, we present a tool, named
hs-to-coq, that translates total Haskell programs into Coq programs via
a shallow embedding.

Finding bugs in Haskell code by proving it

We have used hs-to-coq on various examples, as described in our CPP’18
paper, but it is high-time to use it for real.
