Pérez keynote at PyData Paris Meetup
Associate Professor Fernando Pérez will give the keynote address at this year's PyData Paris Meetup held at the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts.
PyData is an educational program that provides a forum for the international community of users and developers of data analysis tools to share ideas and learn from each other. The network promotes discussion of best practices, new approaches, and emerging technologies for data management, processing, analytics, and visualization using many languages, including Python, Julia, and R.
Pérez is Faculty Scientist in the Data Science and Technology Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. After completing a Ph.D. in particle physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder, his postdoctoral research in applied mathematics centered on developing fast algorithms for the solution of partial differential equations in multiple dimensions. Today, his research focuses on creating tools for modern computational research and data science across domain disciplines, emphasizing high-level languages, interactive and literate computing, and reproducible research.
