Simon Thompson is Professor of Logic and Computation in the School of Computing at the University of Kent. His main research interests are in functional programming, most recently in designing tools to help people to write and test programs more effectively. One example of such a tool is the Haskell Refactorer. He is also the author of introductory texts on Haskell, Erlang and Miranda, as well as Type Theory and Functional Programming.

Talks I've Given
Lazy Interactions - Back to the Future
Featuring Simon Thompson
During this talk, you will discover that interactive programs can be built as lazy functions taking the input (a string) to the output (another string). The approach was was first developed in the 1980s, and is used to take a perspective on how Haskell has changed in the last 25 years.haskell haskellx erlang functional-programming lazy-evaluation stream io list
