Ryan Newton

Indiana University
Associate Professor
Bloomington, Indiana Area
Ryan is a functional programmer of 25 years, and is a member of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler steering committee. Ryan Newton received his Ph.D. in computer science from MIT in 2009, advised by Arvind and Samuel Madden. His thesis introduced techniques for efficiently distributing a single logical program over a sensor network. From 2009 through 2011, Ryan was a software engineer in the developer products division at Intel, where he worked on parallel programming tools for C++, including CilkPlus and CnC. Since 2011, Ryan leads a group of programming languages researchers interested in increasing the safety and parallel performance of high-level, declarative programs. Recent work emphasizes extending the scope, practicality, and rigor of deterministic parallel programming.
