My name is Zé Vinícius, I'm a first year PhD student in Electronic and Computer Engineering (ECE) at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) with the Convex Group. My advisor is Professor Daniel Palomar. My broad research interests include financial engineering and machine learning.
I have spent a summer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as an undergraduate guest researcher and a full year at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as a scientific software engineering intern.
I'm one of the organization administrators for OpenAstronomy as part of the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) program and a deputy AstroPy GSoC coordinator. In past years, I also took part on GSoC both as a mentor and student.
I spend most of my time doing research and writing code.
