Now

What I am up to right now (updated weekly; last update: 12 April 2021). Inspired by Derek Sivers.

I live in Conway, Arkansas with my wife and three children (ages: 9 years, 3 years, and 3 months), where I am an assistant professor of computer science at Hendrix College.

Teaching

The spring semester is more than halfway over! I am teaching:

At the moment most of my time is taken up with teaching + family.

Projects

I’m co-chair of the Artifact Evaluation Committee for ICFP 2021, together with Gabriel Scherer. We are working on putting together a committee and laying out a roadmap for the submission and review process.

I have been working for several years on disco, a functional teaching language for discrete mathematics I’ve been developing. This year I have a student working on it with me, adding support for finite maps and graphs to the language.

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.
