• A Brazilian geophysicist, hacker, and open-sourceror living abroad.
  • Researching gravity and magnetic inverse problems.
  • Building open-source software like Tesseroids, Fatiando a Terra, and a Python wrapper for GMT.
  • Hiker, traveler, ukulele player, amateur sourdough bread baker.


I am a scientist who develops methods for determining the inner structure of the Earth from geophysical observations, mainly disturbances in the gravity and magnetic fields. As a proponent of open-science, all of the software I develop to accomplish my research and teaching is open-source. I do my best to bring more openness to the scientific process and to train the next generation of scientists in the best practices for reproducible research.

Curriculum Vitae

I keep a PDF version of my CV in a more traditional format. It is typeset in Latex using a custom open-source template. The source is available on the Github repository leouieda/cv.
