Now

What I am up to right now (updated weekly; last update: 21 September 2020). Inspired by Derek Sivers.

I live in Conway, Arkansas with my wife and two sons (ages 9 and 3), where I am an assistant professor of computer science at Hendrix College.

Teaching

This fall I am teaching four courses, all entirely online:

Classes began a few weeks ago, and I’ve begun to settle into a good rhythm. Roam Research has been fantastic for course planning—collecting notes, keeping track of todos, and generally keeping me sane even in the midst of having a ridiculous number of balls in the air.

Projects

I have been working for several years on disco, a functional teaching language for discrete mathematics I’ve been developing. This fall I will have a student working on it with me.

I enjoy solving problems on Open Kattis, for fun, learning, and as preparation for teaching Algorithms and coaching the Hendrix programming team. I’ve also started a series of blog posts on how to solve competitive programming problems in Haskell.
