About me

I am a specialist programmer at VLSCI, a high-performance computing facility for life sciences at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I am also an honorary fellow of Computing and Information Systems at the same institution, and an occasional lecturer in that department.

My interests in computing are many and varied, but I am quite fond of programming language implementation and theory, especially functional programming languages such as Haskell. More recently I’ve become interested in bioinformatics and computational biology.

I organise the Melbourne Functional Programming Union (FPU). Since 1998 the FPU has provided a forum for people to meet and discuss topics related to functional (and declarative) programming. If you would like to join the FPU please request an account on the mailing list.
