Michael Walker (MEng)

I am Michael Walker, otherwise known online as barrucadu. I am currently a Ph.D student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York.

My research relates to nondeterministic concurrency in pure functional programming languages, such as Haskell. Increasingly, turning to concurrency for performance gains is a no-brainer, but it can be hard to get it right. Concurrency is hard in a number of areas:

I am currently working on testing and formal verification. After that, I plan to look into supercompilation of concurrent programs, aiming to execute as much of the computation at compile-time as possible.

See my publications and CV.
