I am a late-stage Ph.D. student in Robotics at MIT CSAIL, and I first used "Julia" in 2012!

Structural lambdas for generic code and delayed evaluation
Gustavo Nunes Goretkin

We describe an experimental package that reifies lambda functions as a Lambda(args, body) and function calls as Call(function, args), giving a new way to "quote" expressions. It generalizes types like Base.Fix2, Base.Generators, Iterators.Filter and possibly many others. It might be well-suited for the recurring pattern of deferred computation in Julia code.
