I'm a professor in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern University. My research interests are programming languages, compilers, and systems.

At Northeastern, I teach Fundamentals of Computer Science 1 (CS 2500) in the Fall, and Compilers (CS U4410/G4410) in the Spring.

    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.
