I am seismologist and my research interests are array seismology and ambient noise tomography. My favourite hobby is to develop software and sailing.  Currently, I am working at the Spanish Navy Observatory as a head of the Seismology Service. Moreover, I am teaching signal processing and Python programming.

Soon, me and my colleages  will release a brand new python GUI for earthquake seismology. 

You can find the ISP software with the tutorials & documentation, please feel free to send me an email if you have any question or even if you want to join to out Python developer team.
