Short Bio

Julian Dolby has been a Research Staff Member at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center since 2000. He works on a range of topics, including static program analysis, software testing and the semantic web. He has also worked on the Jikes Research Virtual Machine (Jikes RVM).

His program analysis work has recently been focused on scripting languages like JavaScript and on security analysis of Web applications; their work has been included in IBM products, most notably Rational AppScan products, and he is one of the primary authors of the publicly-available Watson Libraries for Analysis (WALA) program analysis infrastructure. His testing work has been primarily focused on Web applications in the Apollo project, and on finding concurrency bugs using both dynamic execution and model checking. His semantic Web work has been on scalable inference with the SHER project; recently, he has focused on representing RDF data efficiently in an RDBMS.

He was educated at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an undergraduate, and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a graduate student where he worked with Professor Andrew Chien on programming systems for massively-parallel machines.
