|Some days, I feel like my shadow's casting me,|
Some days, the sun don't shine.
- W. Zevon
I'm an associate professor in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University. My research interests are programming languages, compilers, and systems.
Before I came to Northeastern, I was a research scientist at MIT's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. At MIT, my students chose me after reading a little thumbnail bio published by the undergraduate office. But you can see the original, pre-censored version that I mailed in.
At Northeastern, I teach Fundamentals of Computer Science 1 (CS U211) in the Fall, and Compilers (CS U4410/G4410) in the Spring.
I ran the Express project at the AI Lab.
A lot of people have been kinda worried about me ever since I published the scsh manual back in 1993, but I'm feeling a lot better, really.
There is no Scheme underground; it's all just rumour and hearsay.
Please get lost.
I do have hobbies.
Don't let your fascination with technology cause you to neglect the spiritual issues.
My Scheme network code is available. The package runs in scsh, and includes a complete, extensible HTTP server.
Planning to write a doctoral dissertation? Save me from repeating my standard advice on the subject, and read it instead.
I organised the ICFP'98 Functional Programming Contest, with Marc Feeley.
