Jeremy Siek is an Associate Professor of Computer Science in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University. Jeremy teaches courses in programming, programming languages, compilers, logic, and other areas of computer science. Jeremy designs new language features to help programmers create and use software libraries and domain-specific languages, especially generic and high-performance ones. In particular, Jeremy invented the gradual typing approach to mixing static and dynamic type checking within the same language. Prior to that, Jeremy authored the Boost Graph Library and attempted to add concepts to C++. Jeremy is a member of the Programming Languages Group at IU and the Center for Research in Extreme Scale Technologies (CREST).

I’ve been fortunate to see some of my ideas get used in the software industry:
- Facebook has added gradual typing to PHP. See the article in Wired magazine.
- The implicits feature of Scala was inspired by my work on concepts for C++.

CS MS Student Advising
I am available for walk-in advising in my office (LH 230D) on Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:00-4:00pm. If you have a question about fulfilling your MS degree requirements, come with your CS MS Plan filled out. (Here is an example plan.) You may also send me email, with the subject line beginning with “CS MS:”, and I will read and respond to those emails during the walk-in advising time, but giving priority to students who are there in person. If you email me your CS MS Plan, make sure that it is a plain text file, not another format such as MS Word.
