Stijn Heldens🔊

Welcome to my personal web page. I'm a Dutch computer scientist who is currently a Research Software Engineer (RSE) at the Netherlands eScience Center (NLeSC) and a visiting researcher at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

I am passionate about accelerating scientific computing applications and making the massive computing power of today's systems more accessible to a wider audience, thereby empowering domain scientists to achieve groundbreaking discoveries.

In scientific research, my interests lie in high-performance computing (HPC), with a particular focus on parallel algorithms, distributed systems, programming languages/compilers, and GPU programming.
