Stijn obtained his MSc degree in Computer Science from VU University, with a specialization in High-Performance Computing. His master thesis focused on the performance and scalability of community detection, a type of graph analysis where the goal is to split the dataset into cohesive components. During his thesis, he several developed multi-core and many-core methods for graph processing.

Before joining the Netherlands eScience Center, he worked at Delft University of Technology and University Twente on various graph-processing research projects. 

His research interests lie in parallel algorithm design, large-scale distributed/parallel processing, and GPU programming.
