Associate Professor Ilya Sergey joined Yale-NUS College in November 2018, holding a joint appointment with NUS School of Computing.

From November 2015 till October 2018, he was a faculty member at the Department of Computer Science of University College London (UCL). Prior to joining UCL, from December 2012 to October 2015, he was a postdoc at IMDEA Software Institute (Madrid, Spain). From November 2008 to November 2012, he was a research assistant in the Computer Science Department of KU Leuven (Belgium), where he obtained his PhD. He got his MSc degree in Mathematics and Computer Science in 2008 from the Department of Mathematics and Mechanics of Saint Petersburg State University. Before joining academia, he worked as a software developer at JetBrains.

Assoc Prof Ilya Sergey does research in programming language theory, including, but not limited to types, semantics, software verification, and program synthesis. His particular areas of interest include:

  • Applied logic for program verification (especially for concurrency and distributed systems);
  • Design and implementation of programming languages;
  • Static program analysis (in particular, in application to higher-order and concurrent programs).
