Building the foundations for open-source geophysics

Leonardo Uieda



I gave this talk at the Earth Sciences Research Group (ESRG) seminar series of the University of Liverpool. This was my first talk to the department and I decided to layout why I think open-source development boosts research productivity and what are the tools we use every day. I hope to help people find these tools and lead by example in the Computer-Oriented Geoscience Lab.

In this talk, I'll go over some of my work on open-source geophysics software (Python and GMT), how we're building communities around them, and how this ties into my current research and efforts towards reproducibility.
