René Schoof is a Dutch professor of mathematics. According to Guus Razoux Schultz, Schoof was the original 1981 proposer of F2L, the speedsolving concept of using corner-edge pairs to finish the first two layers of a 3x3 Rubik's Cube.

The CFOP method was known in the Netherlands as the "Dockhorn-Treep system" (named after its developers (Kurt Dockhorn and Anneke Treep). It was published in 1981 by Frans Schiereck.[2] However according to Guus Razoux Schultz the F2L part of it had been developed by René Schoof.[3] Guus adopted F2L for his own CFCE method, and was the only competitor at the World Rubik's Cube Championship 1982 to use F2L.

Schoof is currently a professor of mathematics at the Università di Roma, specializing in number theory.
