Joost VandeVondele [1]

Joost VandeVondele,
a Belgian physicist, since 2016 head of the Scientific Software and Libraries unit at CSCS, ETH Zurich [2], and before, assistant professor of nanoscale simulations at the Department of Materials Science, ETHZ. He holds a M.Sc. in engineering physics from Ghent University, and a Ph.D. from ETHZ in 2001, and further researched as postdoc and senior assistant at the University of Zurich, and as a Marie-​Curie Fellow at the University of Cambridge [3]. His research areas include computational physics, chemical physics, materials science, modeling and simulation, density functional theory (DFT) and random phase approximation (RPA), and high performance computing. Joost VandeVondele further improves scientific software libraries and program packages, for instance the open source quantum chemistry and solid state physics program package CP2K, focusing on sparse matrix multiplication algorithms.


In 2016, Joost VandeVondele started to contribute to the Stockfish project [4]. As of January 2020, he has accepted to take the role of the maintainer [5], and was involved in merging NNUE evaluation into the master branch of the official Stockfish GitHub repository for Stockfish NNUE [6] [7].
