Reading

These are the books I have read and enjoyed the most since I became interested in Data Analysis, Statistics and Data Visualization.

Teaching

If I am honest, I never considered teaching as an option until a few years ago. But sometimes destiny seems to have its own plans for you. That’s exactly what happened in 2016 and I must say I truly loved that first teaching experience. Sure, it can be exhausting some times. But nowadays I can’t see myself not doing it.

Projects

Here is a nonexhaustive selection of projects I have been working on for the last years. Some are pretty big, and some are just proofs of concept. There is some diversity of technologies (iOS, R, .NET, Access, etc.) as I always try to choose the tool I feel most appropriate for the given task.

Shiny App Demo for Regression Model

I created this proof of concept Shiny app to show how outliers can heavily influence regression models.

Screencast Series on YouTube (Catalan)

I recorded a bunch of 25 screencasts for the iOS App Development class I teached in 2018.

Mobile Developer’s Guide to the Galaxy

I have translated the last two editions of this awesome book about mobile development into Spanish.

Big O Quiz App

I created this app to help everyone study computational complexities of common data structures and algorithms used in Computer Science.

Needleman-Wunsch App

I programmed this app to show how the NW algorithm used in bioinformatics to align protein or nucleotide sequences actually works.

Election Polls Analysis (Catalan)

I analyzed election polls data in this Medium article with 68K views and 31K reads that was also published in Esguard magazine (issue 271).

Circlestouch App

I had a lot of fun while programming this addictive game where you have to touch some circles and let others vanish. Really simple.

Numsolver App

I developed this app to to solve the numbers part in the popular Countdown game show.

Database for Department of Neurology

I developed this Microsoft Access application at the request of a medical doctor who needed it for his department of neurology in one of the most important hospitals in Spain.

My Vocapp App

This was the first app I created for a client, a boutique English school that wanted to help their Italian students learn English vocabulary.

Contact

As I am a deep work believer and practitioner, I only check my email inbox twice a day, at 10 a.m and 6 p.m. So do expect some hours delay in my responses. If you are not familiar with the deep work concept, you probably could benefit from reading Deep Work, Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World by Cal Newport.
