Benjamin P. Wood
Assistant Professor of Computer Science


I am fascinated by the expression and implementation of computation, from programming languages through compilers and run-time systems to computer architecture.  My research focuses on programming-language and system support for reliable concurrent and parallel software.  I aim to improve programming models, language implementations, and systems to make problematic implicit properties of program executions explicit, so that programmers can more easily find, eliminate, or avoid software concurrency bugs.  Outside of computer science, I enjoy self-powered travel through wild places.
