My academic experience is a bit limited because I decided to pursue an industry job after I finished my doctoral studies, but still there are many projects, research and experiences that are worth highlighting here.
Open Source Projects
Gadget Snapshot Reader
Simple python module to read Gadget snapshot (type 1).
Here you can find the ideas of the on-going projects which I'm involved.
Numerical modelling of Black holes binaries
Being the main topic of my PhD thesis, I'm currently involved in a few projects that study the dynamical evolution of black hole binaries in gas rich environments, but also considering the gas properties and how we can get some information related to circum-binary structures.
For this topic, I use Gadget, which is a cosmological N-body/Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics code.
Currently, two-papers are in progress related to this topic,
which will be ready on 2017.

Dynamical evolution of Globular clusters
During my Master, I decided to study astrophysical simulation of N-body systems which became the first project for my PhD. I developed GraviDy to be able to have a well structured code as base for future projects.
Collaborators: P. Amaro-Seoane
Medical Image Processing
Inmmunohistochemistry (IHC) analysis is a common practice to evaluate the evolution of different types of cancer. This process needs a biomarker to identify the cell membrane, like the Human Epidermal growth factor Receptor 2 (HER2). To study this images, one can use different texture features at a pixel-level, to be able to get the changes in the cells and classify them.
