John Lamping has been working at PARC since he received his PhD from Stanford in 1987 (supervised by Terry Winograd). He works on separating out various issues that are typically
entangled in computer science. His dissertation was about allowing first class objects to retain some free parameters without operations on the objects having to be aware of that fact.
He's worked on substitution without copying, closures without a commitment to implementation, methods without a commitment to classes, natural language semantics without a
commitment to syntax, and graphics without a commitment to Euclidean space.
