I'm Samuel W. Flint (Sam to most people). I'm currently a PhD student at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, studying under Professor Robert Dyer in the ESQuaReD lab. My interests are in programming languages and their empirical evaluation, as well as, to a lesser extent, computer science and software engineering education.

I completed my BS at UNL as well, majoring in Computer Science, with a minor in Philosophy. During this time, I was an early member of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering's Learning Assistant Program as a Senior Leader, helping to get the program off the ground. I was also involved in OS2G, for a time, as Vice President.

Outside of the academic, I'm a firm supporter of Free Software, and contribute to several projects, as well as maintain some of my own (see here), and am an ardent Emacs user. I also enjoy cooking, baking, collecting antiques (and repairing typewriters!), and as of late, bicycling.
