Hi! I’m a Haskell programmer based in Brighton, England. I am currently engaged as a research fellow for the Visual Modelling Group (University of Brighton) and for the STAC project (IRIT, Toulouse).

I am also available for freelance work. If you would like some help from a functional programmer, please ! I like to make interesting software, and also to do a bit of writing to help other programmers learn new ideas. I prefer working on free software whenever possible, and have a background in natural language generation; but I am flexible on the first front and eager to expand my horizons on the second.

I am a fan (and fairly inactive maintainer) of the Darcs revision control system. I also hope to encourage NLP people to use more Haskell.

In a past life, I was a freelance programmer, working with Computational Linguistics Ltd and Well-Typed. Before that, I was a research fellow in the NLTG group (University of Brighton). I also used to work in LORIA with the TALARIS project.
