Name: Andrew Myers

Bio: Andrew Myers is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 1999, advised by Barbara Liskov.

His research interests include computer security, programming languages, and distributed and persistent programming systems. His work on computer security has focused on practical, sound, expressive languages and systems for enforcing information security. The Jif programming language makes it possible to write programs which the compiler ensures are secure, and the Fabric system extends this approach to distributed programming. The Polyglot extensible compiler framework has been widely used for programming language research.

Myers is an ACM Fellow. He has received awards for papers appearing in POPL’99, SOSP’01, SOSP’07, CIDR’13, PLDI’13, and PLDI’15.

Myers is currently co-Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Computer Security and serves on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Computer Systems.
