Stijn Heldens🔊

Hi! You seem to have reached my personal page on the web. I am a Dutch computer scientist and currently employed as PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam and the Netherlands eScience Center. I enjoy academic research and my interests lie in anything related to high-performance computing, parallel algorithms, distributed systems, compilers/​programming languages, and GPU programming (and lighthouses!). My programming languages of choices are Rust, C++/C, CUDA, Kotlin, and Python.
