About Chris Nicholls

📖 Summary

My academic background is in mathematical analysis, theoretical computer science, and programming languages, but I've always been fascinated by game development, simulation and interactive systems. Over the last five years, I've primarily been working with JVM based languages; mostly Java, but more recently Scala. Though I've used a number of of other languages, Haskell is still my favourite; there's nothing quite like it for creating little interpreters for toy languages.Software Engineer @ Currently working in the game team at improbable, where I bridge the gap between the core architecture and the artists, I enjoy the challenge of making technical research useful and tangible. The job involves stress testing the platform with new gameplay features. I love the mix of technical challenges and visual feedback. In my time here, I have worked on quite a few different areas, touching different problems in distributed systems, building our AI framework and implementing gameplay specs from our artists.
