|You can't depend on your judgement |
when your imagination is out of focus.
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.
