About me

I am a fourth and final year student of Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh.

In the past, I’ve worked with Ohad Kammar on implementing an ML-style module system for Idris 2, a dependently typed language. We also worked together on a probabilistic programming DSL/library in Idris, with an accompanying probabilistic music composition tool.

I also co-founded TypeSig, a student special interest group at UoE, which aims to get undergraduates interested in theoretical computer science. TypeSig runs weekly Lean workshops and regular academic talks (from the likes of Phil Wadler, John Baez and Kevin Buzzard). We also ran our very own lecture series and conference!

My main academic interests lie in programming language theory (PL), type theory, quantum computing, and category theory.

Outside of the nerd life, I enjoy synthesizers (both playing and making them), reading, and eclectic (read: bad) music. In order to truly fit the PL stereotype, I’ve recently taken up climbing.

Here’s a map of countries I’ve been to: (you can find the script that made this image here)

About this site

You can read in detail about how this site is made in this post, but the gist is: this site is generated from a set of Org files using Hakyll (and Pandoc), and served to you using Caddy. It’s hosted on a VPS from Contabo, which I’ve infected with NixOS. I thoroughly recommend all of these.

The CSS I’m currently using is a modified tufte-css. This allows for the nice side and margin notes you can see throughout my site. To aid writing with this, I use pandoc-sidenote in my pandoc compiler to convert standard markdown footnote syntax into sidenotes and margin notes.

You can also browse this site entirely from within Emacs using Org mode! Find out how here.
