Postdoctoral Researcher at Universitat d'Alacant San Vicente del Raspeig, Valencian Community, Spain

Data Scientist, and PhD in Astrophysics, keen to contribute with new ideas.
In 2017 after defending my Tesis, I made a decision to leave academia to become a Data Scientist. Back then, and during the first months, I trained myself within the tools and skills required, in August 2018 I graduated as a data scientist from the Pivigo training course S2DS London.
Now I am in a big project in the Universidad de Alicante that mix both of my passion, Astrophysics and Data Science.
