I am a geophysicist specializing in the development of methods for determining the inner structure of the Earth from geophysical observations, mainly disturbances in the Earth's gravity and magnetic fields. As part of my research, I develop open-source projects (mostly in Python) for geophysical modeling and data analysis (Fatiando a Terra: https://www.fatiando.org) and visualization (PyGMT: https://www.pygmt.org).

Short Biography

I am currently Lecturer of Geophysics at the University of Liverpool, where I'm starting the Computer-Oriented Geoscience Lab. Our research and teaching make heavy use of open-source software. The lab develops and maintains the Fatiando a Terra project, a collection of Python libraries for the Geosciences along with some general purpose tools.

Before coming to Liverpool, I was a Visiting Researcher at the University of Hawai’i, USA, where I worked on the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT), a widely-used software for processing and visualizing geophysical data. My main contributions were the development of PyGMT and modernizing the team’s development process (moving to GitHub, starting a Discourse forum, setting up continuous-integration, etc). Prior to Hawai’i, I worked for three years as Assistant Professor of Geophysics at the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
