Geophysicist specializing in methods for determining the inner structure of the Earth from geophysical observations, mainly disturbances in the Earth's gravity and magnetic fields. Developer of open-source software in Python and C for processing, modelling, and visualizing geophysical data. Advocate for openness in the scientific process and the adoption of best practices in computational research.
At the University of Liverpool, I teach several modules in the Earth Sciences programs and do research on generating models of the subsurface using measurements of the Earth's gravity and magnetic fields. I use computer programming extensively to empower both my teaching and research.
Along with my role at the University, I'm also a Topic Editor for the Journal of Open Source Software, a member of the Advisory Council for EarthArXiv, and a Fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute.
I develop and maintain several open-source scientific software projects:
• Fatiando a Terra: A collection of tools for data processing and geophysical modeling (written in Python)
• Tesseroids: A program for modeling gravity fields on a spherical Earth (written in C)
• PyGMT: A library for creating publication-quality data visualizations and maps (written in Python and C)
