Stefaan Evenepoel completed his PhD at the KU Leuven with a dissertation on the poetry of Rutger Kopland (Volmaakt onaf. Over stijl en thematiek in de vroege poëzie van Rutger Kopland. Leuven: University Press, 2000). His current research is on strategies for translating cultural references in literature and on the relationship between adaptations (same language or not) and translations. He also publishes articles and essays on contemporary poetry (from the Netherlands and Flanders), particularly focusing on its stylistic aspects.
