Troels Henriksen’s website

Welcome to my website. My name is Troels Henriksen, and I am a Danish hacker (more about me) and general enthusiast in all matters computing. I am presently working as a PhD student at DIKU, the computer science department at the University of Copenhagen, where I do research into optimising compilers for data-parallel language. Concretely, I am working on an optimising compiler targeting GPUs.

On this site I present programs I have written, my configuration files, and minor scripts that may of some amusement to others. I also have a blog, which I may update from time to time. I tend to create categories before content (curiously mirroring my interest in type theory), so parts of the site may seem skeletal. Please excuse my pompous introductions for folders containing naught but a five-line shell script.

For those curious about technical details, this site is statically generated via the nifty Hakyll framework, although it used to be written in shell script via the pretty good werc anti-framework. The source code is available here.

In case all this is too boring for you, why not check out topDatamat? It’s a Danish (English subtitles) sketch show, sort of inspired by Top Gear, that we film in the basement under the department of computer science at the University of Copenhagen. I’m involved as writer and (very poor) actor.
