About me

Hi again!

I really appreciate it that you’ve come to this page. Please, have a look, and don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.

Thanks for reading!

My services

  • Full-stack software development

    I like solving problems a lot. This means dealing with a variety of software stacks, e.g. Python (NumPy/Django/SciPy/matplotlib), Ruby (Rails) , Swift, and the list goes on…

    I am most confident with Ruby and Python, and am knowledgeable in Swift, Lua, Dart (Flutter), and C++. I can also lend a hand with modern web development. I wrote this site by hand in Jekyll, with Sass as its stylesheet framework, and a custom Gulp.js-based toolchain for continuous integration.

    In the future, I’d like to be more involved with Lua, and start learning the new darlings (Rust and Go).

  • Writing and proofreading

    Thanks to so many elective courses I took, I am able to write high quality academic texts and manuals. I can also dig into existing source code bases and document them.

    I am fluent in English, Spanish (both C2) and French (B2).

  • Graphics design

    Before getting into computers, I took many courses in vector graphics design. These came in handy when designing and fixing the illustrations for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis.

    I am experienced in CorelDRAW and the Adobe suite, but currently I prefer Inkscape for its availability and reproducibility.
