I am an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Boston College. If you would like to discuss something related to my teaching or research, please contact me.
My research is related to the reliabilty and performance of computer software. I worked on high-performance certifying compilers for higher-order typed programming languages such as Standard ML. I spent several years working as a founding member of the Church Project. Together with Robert Harper, I was a co-founder of the Types in Compilation (TIC) series of workshops. The TIC workshop series subsequently evolved into its current form: Types in Language Design and Implementation (TLDI).
Most of my earlier papers can be found here.
I teach a variety of courses in the computer science curriculum. My schedule for the spring semester of the 2016-2017 academic year has me teaching CSCI 2254 Web Applications.
CSCI 2254 meets MWF at noon and CSCI 3366 meets MWF at 2PM, both in Fulton 415.
My office hours are M 3PM - 4:30PM, T 10AM - 11:30AM.
Are you one of my academic advisees? Stop in during office hours to see me! make an appointment!
Thinking of asking me for a letter of recommendation? I may be able to help, but please read this first.
