"Now this is the peculiarity of scientific method, that when once it has become a habit of mind, that mind converts all facts whatsoever into science. The field of science is unlimited; its material endless, every group of natural phenomena, every phase of social life, every stage of past or present development is material for science. The unity of all science consists alone in its method, not in its material. The man who classifies facts of any kind whatever, who sees their mutual relation and describes their sequences, is applying the scientific method and is a man of science. The facts may belong to the past history of mankind, to the social statistics of our great cities, to the atmosphere of the most distant stars, to the digestive organs of a worm, or to the life of a scarcely visible bacillus. It is not the facts themselves which form science, but the methods by which they are dealt with."

— Karl Pearson, The Grammar of Science. London: Everyman, 1938, p. 16.

Welcome

    I am a Research Scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center doing research in the field of atmospheric sciences at the Climate and Radiation Lab. Prior to that, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). I completed my Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the Spanish Center of Astrobiology and the University of Salamanca, Spain.


    Besides my mathematical skills, I have acquired an extensive background as data scientist and I am proficient in several programming languages. As a current member of the NASA/NOAA DSCOVR satellite mission, I have the opportunity to analyze unique data to learn more about our changing planet.


    In my work, I do interdisciplinary science by applying ideas from different fields to new research problems. I have studied physics, economics, and law, and I am always open to new ideas and collaborations. Thank you for visiting my website.
