Gaston Mazzei 26, Physicist, Software Developer
Designing, building, improving, and using scientific tools to solve complex problems.
Born in southern South America (Argentina) and very Passionate about Nature, some of its details along with Humankind's mathematical models were formally learnt during a 6-year-long Bsc+Msc Physics degree. During that time several personal and academic projects were accomplished, and 3 years of work experience was accumulated.
With a great taste for programming and problem-solving in general and supported by an hystrionic personality I worked a little bit under a year in a post-sales role in a Telecommunication company mainly focused on customizing the software to the clients' needs, albeit a preference for mathematical modelling and physical systems motivated me to take the next step.
Taking great pride in being philosophically aligned with the European Union's core beliefs, looking forward to participating in projects at the most technologically advanced Latin country, and with a "French Quantum Technologies" fellowship to fund the study of High-Performance-Computing and it's link with Quantum Computing by participating one year in the Master in Parallel, Distributed and Quantum Computing at the recently created Behemoth the Paris-Saclay University, I participated in the French technology sector via two 4-month internships as a C++ developer for augmented reality in embedded systems and code optimization in supercomputers, both inside the topic of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
From the field of physics my favourite topics are statistical physics, complex systems, and fluid dynamics, and from Computer Science I find great joy in the fields of High Performance Computing, Optimization, and Machine Learning. Mathematical modelling is fun!
My personal interests include practising sports such as squash, trekking, and pre-pandemics amateur Olympic-style weightlifting. I'm a quite histrionic individual so I enjoy joking around and playing music. With friends I like spending time watching movies and/or cooking, and I'm deeply passionate about animals. Culturally I enjoy very much both classical music in general and specific composers from the German, French and Italian baroque. My taste for Contemporary Academic Music still needs some nourishing!
