     144Though a doctoral thesis is an individual project, I could not have completed it without the help and support of many members of my community.
     145This thesis would not exist in the form it does without the mentorship of my advisor, Peter Buhr, who has ably led the \CFA{} team while giving me both the advantage of his decades of experience and the freedom to follow my own interests.
     146My work on \CFA{} does not exist in a vaccuum, and it has been a pleasure and a privilege to collaborate with the members of the \CFA{} team: Andrew Beach, Richard Bilson, Michael Brooks, Bryan Chan, Thierry Delisle, Glen Ditchfield, Brice Dobry, Rob Schluntz, and others.
     147I gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the National Science and Engineering Council of Canada and the Waterloo-Huawei Joint Innovation Lab for this project.
     148I would also like to thank of my thesis committee, Ond\v{r}ej Lhot\a'ak, Gregor Richards, and Doug Lea, for the time and effort they have invested in providing constructive feedback to refine this work.
     149I am indebted to Peter van Beek and Ian Munro for their algorithmic expertise and willingness to share their time with me.
     150I have far too many colleagues in the Programming Languages Group and School of Computer Science to name, but I deeply appreciate their camaradarie; specifically with regard to the production of this thesis, I would like to thank Nathan Fish for recommending my writing soundtrack, and Sharon Choy for her unfailing supply of encouraging rabbit animations.
     151Finally, to all my friends and family who have supported me and made Kitchener-Waterloo home these past seven years, thank you, I could not have done it without you; most especially, Christina Moss, you are the best of wives and best of women, your support has kept me going through the ups and downs of research, and your partnership is key to all my successes.

     160% To Christina, who has spent too many hours politely listening to me work out the technical minutiae of this thesis, I love you, and I won't make you read it.
