I have professional experience in math, logic and CS, and beyond exact sciences I have interest in art painting and playing chess (Int. ELO about 2250).

Non scientific activities

In 2014 I joined KGSRL in Gent and every now and then you find me there behind a chess board.
In 2017 I gave a simultan during the UGent 200 event. In my youth I published three chess problems in a refereed chess journal (DSZ).
You may give them a try! The first is mate in two from Deutsche Schachzeitung 10 (1980) p.351 (easy to solve):

The second is mate in two from Deutsche Schachzeitung 7 (1979) p.254 :

The third is self mate in two from Deutsche Schachzeitung 1 (1980) p.40:

I also like painting and paintings (e.g. the classics by Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, and among more recent artists George Gallo, Gennadi Kirichenko, Sergei Toutounov and Chris De Clerqc).
In March 2015 I joined Art de Pinte artdepinte.be where some of pictures can be found in the gallery. My favorite subject is landscapes.

In March 2016 there was an exhibition in the public library in De Pinte. Here is the Poster I truly believe that art and mathematics fit nicely together and that creativity is one unifying element.
I do, for example, seascapes. This oil painting (80x80cm^2) is from 2016.

I also do drawings and watercolors. These trees have been drawn during LC 2017. Here is an impression from Scheldevelde along the cycling path from De Pinte to the Science campus. This ship
and this landscape

(which already won a small distinction) are more recent examples of water colours.
I concentrate on landscape but in the meantime I also learned to do plants, animals, figures and portraits. Here is, for example, a rose in oil (80x80cm^2).
