Biography

Graham Hutton is Professor of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, where he co-leads the Functional Programming Lab. His research interests are in the mathematics of program construction. The aim of his research is to develop simple but powerful techniques for writing and reasoning about computer programs, by recognising and exploiting their underlying mathematical structure. Most of his work takes place in the context of functional languages such as Haskell and Agda.

Professor Hutton is director of the Midlands Graduate School, board member of the Haskell Foundation, an editor of the Journal of Functional Programming, and an ACM distinguished scientist. He has also served as vice-chair of the ACM Special Interest Group on Programming Languages and steering committee chair of the International Conference on Functional Programming.
