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 fall semester of the 2016-2017 academic year has me teaching the Honors section of CS I:
CS 1103 meets TR from 9AM - 10:15AM in Fulton 415.
Are you one of my academic advisees? make an appointment!
Thinking of asking me for a letter of recommendation? I may be able to help, but please read this first.
