Andrew Myers (home page) is a professor of computer science at Cornell University. 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.
