Eelco Visser is Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor of Computer Science and chair of the Programming Languages Group at Delft University of Technology. His current research is on the foundation and implementation of declarative specification of programming languages. He studied at the University of Amsterdam (master 1993; doctorate 1997), and worked at the Oregon Graduate Institute (postdoc 1997-1998), Utrecht University (assistant professor 1998-2006), and TU Delft (associate professor 2006-2013, full professor since 2013).
His research interests include (domain-specific) programming languages, language engineering, program transformation, and declarative language definition.
