Experience

Centre de Recerca Matemàtica

Complex Systems Intern • September 2017 — July 2018

My master's thesis (with Alvaro Corral and Isabel Serra as my thesis supervisors) consists on developing statistical methods using bootstrap, permutation tests, and clustering to study the influence of sea surface temperature on tropical-cyclone intensity.

Additionally, I have created a unified hurricane occurrences dataset with finer temporal temperature tracking than those currently available.


Complex Systems Intern • February — July 2017

My bachelor's thesis (with Alvaro Corral as my thesis supervisor) consists of the study of real hurricanes occurrences using some simple statistical models. The main skills I developed are:

  • Data extraction.
  • Programming.
  • Statistical analysis.

Computational Neuroscience Intern • February — July 2017

Under the supervision of Alexander Roxin, I studied the macroscopic and microscopic description for networks of spiking neurons. The main skills I developed are:

  • Mathematical analysis.
  • Numerical simulations.

Ubuntu GNOME

Marketing Team Lead • April 2013 — October 2017

As Ubuntu GNOME became an official flavour of Ubuntu, I started working on the branding to help build a powerful and recognisable image. My team and I were in charge of all artwork and social-media-related aspects of this young GNU/Linux distribution.

My biggest accomplishments as the Marketing Lead have been:

  • Collaborating with a wonderful team of talented people.
  • Organising trademark agreements with the GNOME Foundation.
  • With the help of others, giving the best desktop UX possible to our users.
