Where I'm at

I'm currently a PhD candidate in Computational Chemistry at the University of British Columbia. I do molecular simulations, to discover how crystals forms and dissolve. I am passionate about technology and programming, every excuse is good to do some coding. I've worked with Python for many years and I've authored a book for Packt, Python High Performance Programming. But by journey doesn't stop here, I'm constantly trying new things to gain perspective on the problems I face (and also to keep things interesting).

Schools and alike
