• Functional programming
• Randomized testing
Atze studied at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) in Amsterdam, where he got a BSc in Computer Science and an MSc in Theoretical Computer Science (cum laude). During his studies he got interested in programming languages, functional programming and compilers, among other things. He joined the Software Analysis and Transformation team at Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI), where he got a PhD on programming language topics under supervision of Prof. Paul Klint.
He then moved to Gothenburg, Sweden for a post-doc at Chalmers University of Technology where he continued to work on (functional) programming languages, mainly topics relating to the programming language Haskell. Aside from programming languages and programming languages-research, he is knowledgeable in algorithms, computer graphics, randomized testing and recently, he delved into the fascinating area of machine learning.
Atze joined the Netherlands eScience Center as an eScience Research Engineer in March 2017.
