Computer Scientist and Mathematician
Benson fell in love with programming at 10 years old playing with Visual Basic. Since then he has worked with more languages and technologies than would fit here: Haskell, Python and C++ just to name a few. He enjoys exploring innovative languages and technologies and discovering what new perspectives they can provide. He specializes in algorithms and functional programming, and is passionate about Haskell. Benson has a Master's degree from the University of Cambridge, a PhD from the University of Waterloo in Canada, and just concluded a 2-year post-doc research position at the University of Waterloo.
