I have not looked at the code or your thesis in detail, but from a
quick reading, it looks very promising.

I see that your code does not include any copyright statement.  As
much of it appears to be derived from Octave, I think it must be
distributed under terms that are compatible with the GPL.  Probably it
is best to include some copyright notice in each substantial file.

Since your compiler relies on the internals of Octave, it might be
good to include it in the core of Octave so that it does not suffer
bit rot and quickly become obsolete (if it is part of Octave, then we
will notice when changes to the Octave internals cause problems for
the the compiler).  Would you be interested in contributing it?
