Dr. Okasaki spent three years at Columbia University as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science, where he taught courses in programming languages and advanced data structures. He has also worked as a visiting researcher at the University of Glasgow, and as a consultant for an Internet startup company, developing a compiler for their agent control language. His primary research interests are programming languages and algorithms. He is especially interested in the combination of these two areas, considering questions of how the details of a programming language affect the implementation and efficiency of algorithms.
