I am 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 help the process of scientific research. Development takes place primarily on GitLab .

All processes involving a computer are (generally) done on my laptop, using the operating system Gentoo Linux , using XMonad or Plasma as desktop environments.

This page was built using the static website generator Nikola , using the theme lightray , created by me. All pages are edited using GNU Emacs .


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

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

If the drawing is not finalized on paper, it serves as the basis for the digital version. For this I use Krita on my computer as the main tool, drawing with a graphics tablet Wacom Intuos S . Some further image processing is done using Inkscape or Gimp . I recently got an iPad Pro 11, and some of the digital work I've been doing on it as well, using Procreate .


Since my research is of a theoretical nature, I don't need much more than paper and pen. However, some tools help a lot in manual work:
