Graham Hutton

      Book 2e Cover

I'm Professor of Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, where I co-lead the Functional Programming Lab.

My research interests are in developing simple but powerful techniques for writing and reasoning about programs, by recognising and exploiting their underlying mathematical structure. I'm an editor of the Journal of Functional Programming, member of IFIP working group 2.1 on Algorithmic Languages and Calculi, and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. I've 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.

I'm originally from Glasgow in Scotland, and received a PhD in Computing Science from the University of Glasgow. I then spent a few years in research positions in Gothenburg and Utrecht, before moving to Nottingham where I am now Professor of Computer Science. I'm married to the lovely Annette, and we have two boys. In my spare time I enjoy cars, cooking and football. Both of our boys play in football teams, and we are season ticket holders for Nottingham Forest.
