Brooklyn, New York

Dr. Eugene Callahan has been involved in computing for over three decades, as both a software engineer and teacher (currently at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering). As a developer, he has worked on personal finance software (Managing Your Money), options trading systems, healthcare applications, and the development of new computer languages. He has taught undergraduate courses in discrete mathematics, statistics, algorithms, operating systems, object-oriented programming, and software engineering. In his role as a teacher, he created Tandon’s first DevOps course.

Eugene also founded Koukou Data, a data aggregation company that seeks to automate the process of retrieving time series data and organizing it so as to meet the requirements of an end user. Koukou Data’s core technology is an application programming interface (API) server that handles requests to fetch and merge a variety of data types from across the Internet. Koukou Data’s software is currently used by a major trade association.

Eugene’s writing has appeared in Dr. Dobb’s Journal, Software Development, Computer Language, Java Developer’s Journal, Cutter IT Journal, Computing Reviews, Review of Political Economy, Journal of Social Economics, British Journal for the History of Philosophy, Critical Review, History: Reviews of New Books, American Journal of Economics and Sociology, Collingwood and British Idealism Studies, Ideas on Liberty, Modern Age, Christian Science Monitor, NYU Journal of Law & Liberty, and more. He is the author of the books Economics for real people and Oakeshott on Rome and America, and co-editor of the books Tradition versus rationalism, Critics of enlightenment rationalism, and Critics of enlightenment rationalism revisited.

Eugene holds a master’s degree from the London School of Economics and a PhD from Cardiff University in Wales. He has been a reviewer for Computing Reviews since 2017.
