Projects

I currently use Gitlab and Github for all my projects, even for the ones which are still in-progress.

Community Initiatives

Together with 5 more people, we officially started the Python Chile initiative, and decided to formalize the group by doing our first event together, the PyDay Chile 2020, which was a real success (read more here).

At the moment we have a community with roughly 1000 people in different platforms, and a team of around 20 people actively helping with projects, events and initiatives to promote Python in Chile.

I joined as an official member of Python España in 2020, after participating in some activities and organizing general programming events.

At the moment I'm actively participating in the official initiatives from the group, being part of the Communication Working Group, and PyConES2021 organization team.

After the birth of the main idea of Python en Español, we decided to setup a Discord server to gather the Spanish speaking Python community.

My participation here has been mainly into the advocacy of the initiative, promotion in different communities, being in charge of the platform's bot and forming the coordination team.

Open Source Projects

Qt for Python (PySide)

Currently part of the team developing the Qt for Python project. We provide a set of Python bindings to use the Qt libraries.

GraviDy

A direct-summation *N-*body integrator, which can be use in clusters/nodes with different flavours of parallelism (OpenMP, MPI or CUDA). It's based on the Hermite 4th order scheme, but can be extended to other integration methods.

Gadget Snapshot Reader

Simple python module to read Gadget snapshot (type 1).

Research Projects

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.

Collaborators: F. Goicovic, L. del Valle, A. Sesana, M. Dotti, P. Amaro-Seoane

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.

I'm currently helping Raquel Pezoa on this project, adapting a code that calculate the Haralick texture features of these images, to run in a large HPC clusters.
