Wieger Wesselink

When writing code I'm always focused on finding the right structure, the right interfaces and the right abstractions. For the implementation of algorithms, I consider it essential that first a description in pseudo code is written, at the right level of abstraction. This not only saves time, but it also leads to more maintainable and flexible code.


Research Profile

Wieger Wesselink is one of the main developers of the mCRL2 toolset, for modeling, validation and verification of concurrent systems and protocols. He is interested in generic programming techniques and software verification. Wieger originally joined the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science as a scientific programmer. However, since then, he has taken on several lecturing tasks, such as teaching and taking part in research projects.   

Academic Background

Wieger Wesselink obtained his master's degree in Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente. After completing a PhD about geometric modeling at Eindhoven University of Technology in 1996, Wesselink has worked as a postdoc in Utrecht on the CGAL computational geometry library, and later as a postdoc in Eindhoven at IPO, Center for User-System Interaction. In 2001 Wesselink was appointed Assistant Professor / Scientific Programmer at TU/e (department of Mathematics and Computer Science). Wieger is also the former Dutch National Draughts Champion (1993).
