My name is Alfonso Sastre, I am a scientist working on Big Data industry after ten years as researcher in Theoretical Physics. Interested in solving problems, either numerically with a computer (or thousands of them) or analytically on the blackboard (I enjoy blackboard discussions).
Always exploring new technologies, now focused on functional programming and how porting numerical algorithms (not just Machine learning) to Big Data technologies. I am also interested in energy optimization at both hardware and software level.
Besides work, I like travelling and rock climbing. I have lived in Spain, The Netherlands, France and Germany. I am an active rock climber for many years and recently started developing resources for climbing in Spain and other countries.
