About

I am also an enthusiast of the ideas of open science and free software, and I have been trying to apply them in the development of tools that helps the process of scientific research. Development takes place mainly on GitLab.

All processes involving computer are done using the operating system Gentoo Linux, using XMonad and Plasma as desktops.

This page was built using the static site generator Nikola, using the default theme bootblog4, slightly modified by me. All pages are edited using GNU Emacs through the fantastic editing mode Org mode.

Art

Traditional/analog arts are generally made with any material at hand. However, some materials I always try to take with me are:

  • Staedtler Mars Technico 780 2.0 mm 780 C-CA mechanical pencil with HB graphite (for sketch)
  • Pentel GraphGear 500 0.3mm, 0.5mm and 0.7mm mechanical pencils with B/2B graphite (for pencil finishing)
  • Unipin 0.1, 0.5, 0.7 and Brush technical pens
  • A6 Spiral Sketchbook with Canson Paper 100g/m2

If the art is not finalized on paper, it serves as basis for the digital version. For this I use the Krita as the main tool, drawing with a digitizing tablet Wacom Intuos S. Further processing on the image is done using Inkscape or Gimp.

Science

Since my research is theoretical by nature, it doesn't take much more than pen and paper. However, some tools help a lot in the manual work:

  • SageMath for general purpose math calculations
  • Cadabra for tensor calculations
