Mathematical Engineer. Obsessed with computability, chaos, fluids, and science. Very occasionally makes generative art. Born at 366 ppm.

My name is Evert Provoost and I'm a Mathematical Engineer, doing a PhD at the KU Leuven. This is my personal page, for information on my day to day work, please visit people.cs.kuleuven.be/~evert.provoost.

Outside of my studies I have an interests in photography and typography. I also appear to have an uncanny ability to remember (mostly) useless facts...

I also maintain a few useful pages, mainly regarding computer science and applied mathematics, see res.eprovst.net.


Since my twelfth birthday I've accumulated varying levels of knowledge of a multitude of programming languages.

The ones I currently use and like the most are Julia, Python, Rust and Fortran. My texts and presentations are made using (La)TeX for which I also wrote a little package. Some of my most successful projects were in Go. I've also had some smaller projects in C, C++, Haskell and Prolog. One language that has caught my interest is Scheme, learning a Lisp is thus also on my to-do list.
