I am a Professor in the Department of Computer Science in the Maseeh College of Engineering & Computer Science at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, USA.

My research interests include all aspects of programming language design, implementation, and application. I am particularly interested in the use of advanced programming language technologies for systems programming, and in the development and application of expressive type and module systems that support the construction and certification of secure and reliable software systems.

I am a member of IFIP Working Group 2.8 - Functional Programming.

At various times, I served as a PI for the HASP, Programatica and the Timber projects. (People still ask me about Timbot).

I was the original designer and implementor of the Gofer and Hugs systems. But, after ten years' work, I no longer maintain or develop those systems.

I live and work in Oregon in the USA. You'd like it here too ...

What have I been upto lately?
