My degrees are in mathematics and I have taught mathematics in Europe and South America. I started to teach computer science in South America and then came to Binghamton. My main activities are in programming languages and aspects of software engineering. I have published work on the Ada language and have chaired the local ACM SigAda Chapter. Current interest is in a variety of programming paradigms, but especially object-oriented programming and design patterns.
