I have a background in Computer Science and Geoinformatics. I have experience in developing GIS systems from back-end to front-end, and I have been working on developing efficient index structures that allow fast queries in large graphs representing real world systems like transportation networks. I am also interested to learn more and share my experience on tools and techniques that are relevant for reproducible software in research.
