This page is basically a load of waffle about myself, and what I like doing, don't like doing, etc... (a very unprofessional CV almost). If you want my CV, mail me and I'll send you a postscript copy.

Things I do
(all integrated into my inherently complex time-management system and in no particular order)

Used to do these things too:

Migration plan

Degree stuff

Ph.D. thesis title is ``Dynamics and Pragmatics for High Performance Concurrency''. You can download this from the publications page.

Incase you want to employ me at some point :-) here's the stuff I did in my final year: "theory of prgramming", "search, optimisation and constraints" (prolog basically), "types and computation" (lambda calci and type theory), "embedded systems", "computer graphics and visulisation", "distributed systems", and wgbuilder for our final-year project. Probably less relevant now.

Future intentions


Fuzzy picture of me
That's a fairly realistic image (from a webcam experiment)

another mugshot. Context here and here.
climbing mugshot
me climbing in the Lake District (Bowderstone Crag, Woden's Crack Variant)
(and botching it due to lack of suitable hexes/cams ;-)).

Um, well, that pretty unrealistic now; I did the hair cut thing ;-).
