I am currently a partner and Haskell Consultant at Well-Typed LLP.

From August 2007 to October 2010, I was a lecturer at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. From August 2005 to July 2007, I was a researcher at the University of Bonn in Germany, in the GFP project. From June to July 2005, I have been working at the University of Freiburg in Germany. In February and March 2005, I have been a visiting researcher at the Institute of Cybernetics in Tallinn, Estonia. From 2000 to 2005, I have also been at Utrecht University, where I finished my PhD in the field of Computer Science in September 2004. From 1995 to 2000, I have studied Mathematics and Computer Science in Konstanz, Germany.

I have been organizing the Utrecht Summer School on Applied Functional Programming 2009 and 2010!

I am the "kosmi" in "Dunkosmiloolump".

I am a member of IFIP WG 2.1.

Research
I am interested in functional programming, programming language theory, type systems, dependently typed programming languages, and applications of functional programming.
I am a member of the Generic Programming project at Utrecht University.
I am a contributor to NixOS.
Thesis
Exploring Generic Haskell
Teaching
If you are interested in hiring me for teaching courses related to Haskell or related topics, please contact Well-Typed LLP. At Utrecht University, I've regularly been teaching the following courses: Introduction to Functional Programming, Languages and Compilers; Advanced Functional Programming, Type Systems and Dependently Typed Programming. There also is a precise overview of my teaching activities at Utrecht University.
If you are a student interested in functional programming, then why not consider to do your Master in Utrecht?

lhs2TeX is a preprocessor to generate LaTeX code from literate Haskell sources. It is available for download via its own homepage.
Generic Haskell
Generic Haskell used to offer generic programming functionality in Haskell as a preprocessor. These days, there are several other approaches to generic programming that are better supported and easier to use. Old releases of the Generic Haskell compiler are still available.
