Andy Gill was born and educated in Scotland, and has spent his professional career in the United States. Gill received his Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1996, then spent three years as a compiler developer for Hewlett Packard, Metrowerks and Semantic Designs. In 1999, he returned to academia, joining the Oregon Graduate Institute as a project scientist. He co-founded the technology transfer spin-off Galois in 2000. Eight years later, he left a thriving and healthy Galois to return to academia and research, joining KU and ITTC.

Gill's research interests include optimization, language design, debugging and dependability. His research aims to offer software engineers and functional language practitioners the opportunity to write clear and high-level executable specifications that can realistically be compiled into efficient implementations.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
