I am an associate professor at the mechanics department of the Royal Military Academy. For my Ph.D., I worked on Coolfluid, a C++ framework for computational fluid dynamics with a domain specific language. My interest in Julia is sparked by its powerful metaprogramming functionality coupled with C++-like performance, together with much better accessibility for students. To ease the transition to Julia, we are working on making some C++ libraries available in Julia. The QML.jl package is part of this effort. We also use Julia in our daily teaching activities, to provide students with interactive solutions to exercises.
