Personal Story – Stefan Tanja

Hi, I’m Stefan. I’m a Computer Science student at the TU/e, and the treasurer for Hoc Habet. My responsibilities are to keep track of our expenses and income.

Fencing has been a hobby since I discovered it, and there is no other sport that gives me the more motivation to improve at. When I completed the beginner’s foil course at my first club, I immediately switched to epee, which I have been fencing with ever since. I’m known best for my very frequent fleche-attacks, but I sneak the occasional footshot in there as well.

Besides fencing, I have a burning passion for algorithms research, and will invest most of my available time into problems I’m struggling with. If possible, I’m aiming for a PhD position after my master’s degree, which I am starting next year.
