Introduction and resume

My name is Cristián, and I am currently working at The Qt Company as a Software Engineer on the Qt for Python project. This project provides a set of bindings to unleash the Qt power to the Python world!.

I got my Doctorate in Astrophysics at the Max-Planck-Institut für Gravitationsphysik (Albert-Einstein-Institute), working on the numerical modelling of Black Holes binaries, and Globular clusters. To achieve this, I performed astrophysical N-body and SPH simulations, using High Performance Computing resources and tools, mainly GPU computing.

In the past I got my Engineer and Master degree in Informatics (Computer Science) at the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María in Chile, from which I got the motivation of working with applied HPC simulations.

Take a look of the projects I am currently working on, and the codes I have written. Most of my research work finished with a publication, so check them out!
