What's New?

A few things have changed recently.

This website is new. I decided to move my website from wordpress to github pages as it provides me more flexibility.

My job is new. I have decided to leave astronomy and start a new career as computer scientist, where I will learn about and apply machine learning techniques - and specifically deep learning - to remote sensing data of Earth.

I hope to be able to share some early results here, soon. Stay tuned!
