Stephen Nicholas Swatman

Hello there! My name is Stephen, and I am currently a PhD student in computer science at the University of Amsterdam in collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Under the supervision of Ana-Lucia Varbanescu and Attila Krasznahorkay, I work on applying heterogeneous computing – GPGPUs in particular – to the reconstruction of particles in high-energy collisions.

Outside of work I like to cycle and swim, play tabletop games of all kinds, take photographs, cook, and commit myself to amateur botany. I am also very interested in category theory, functional programming, type theory, and computational trinitarianism, although my knowledge of these subjects is not nearly as well developed as I would like it to be.

Please take a look around my website. Like any good academic, I have a blog that I never update, outdated contact details, and probably a few dead links here and there.
