Roland Backhouse

Roland Backhouse joined the School of Computer Science in September 1999. He retired in November 2013 and is now an emeritus professor. (So he is not as young as the photograph might suggest!) He continues to do some research and to publish occasionally. His research interests include mathematics of program construction, calculus of relations, category theory, mathematical method, generic programming, and on-line document preparation systems oriented to the needs of authors of mathematical documents.
