I like to fix things so I edit wikipedia when I think appropriate.

I'm Portuguese, have a degree in biology and supporter of Free software (free as in freedom). I enjoy programming and have done it since I started my PhD although I have no formal education on it. I enjoy learning and been taking online courses on Coursera.

I have a big interest on automation of quantitative data analysis (to the anguish of supervisors who just want the results) and enjoy writing elegant code.


I may edit pages about things I'm associated with and I'll try to be impartial. For full disclosure, I'll have a list of them here.

  • I am one of the GNU Octave developers and the maintainer of the Octave Forge project.
  • I am a contributor for BioPerl
  • I am a contributor for gtksourceview (syntax highlight mainly used by gedit)
