Jeffrey Werner "Jeff" Bezanson is an American computer scientist known for being a co-creator of the Julia[1][2][3][4] programming language. He is an alumnus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). He received a B.A. in computer science from Harvard in 2004,[5] and PhD from MIT in 2015. He founded the consulting company Julia Computing[6] with his fellow Julia creators: his doctoral advisor Alan Edelman, Stefan Karpinski, and Viral B. Shah.

Bezanson is the first author on the core academic papers on Julia.[7][8] He speaks annually at the Julia developers conference (JuliaCon).[9] He spoke at SciPy 2013 with Karpinski on "Julia and Python: a dynamic duo for scientific computing".[10]

Bezanson is the grandson of composer Philip Bezanson, known for the opera Golden Child, written in 1960 to a libretto by Paul Engle.
