Specialises In

Manuel M T Chakravarty is an Associate Professor at UNSW Sydney and the indie developer behind the interactive development environment Haskell for Mac — one of the first Swift apps on the Mac App Store. His core research interests are functional programming, novel compiler technology, and high-performance computing. He contributed to both the design and implementation of the Haskell programming language as well as several Haskell tools and open source libraries, including multiple systems for data parallel programming of multicore CPUs and GPUs. Over the last two years, he has focused on making functional programming more broadly accessible and on exploring its role in app development in Swift. Most importantly, he believes in the fruitful combination of theory and practice.
