Physicist. Lead data scientist. Open-source programmer. Science & IT consultant. Music composer.

Author of the error propagation program "uncertainties", and of the real time annotation program realtime_annotate.

Have been teaching Python to graduate, doctoral and post-doctoral students, engineers and researchers since 2009.

Have been loving science since 1980, and practicing it since 1998 (PhD in quantum physics).

Good code design is a major priority for me.

Started programming in 1983. Worked with a dozen programming languages (imperative [Python, Fortran, Perl, Pascal, BASIC, C, C++,…], functional [Caml], mathematical (Mathematica, Maple, IDL), stack-based [Postscript, HP RPL], constraint-based [Prolog], flow-based [LabView], and assembly [Motorola 68000, HP Saturn]).

Have been working with Unix since 1994.

Started programming in Python in 2006, and still loving it!
