The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice. It is conformity. --Rollo May



In 2014, I completed my PhD under the supervision of Leo Storme and I am now working on a postdoctoral grant of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO), from October 2014 to September 2017.

My main field of research is computational finite geometry, which classifies me in the Incidence Geometry research group. More about my research and other aspects of my work here, can be found on the respective pages on this website.

If you need to ship me some mail, you can do so at:

Peter Vandendriessche
Department of Mathematics (WE01)
Krijgslaan 281, building S22
9000 Gent

but an email to is probably much, much faster.

Below is a picture of my house.

Unfortunately, there was a scientist in front of the lens when this picture was taken, so you can't really see it. Well, too bad, you'll have to do it with this. :)
