Leonardo Uieda

Visiting Research Scholar
University of Hawaii at Manoa, USA
I am currently a Visiting Research Scholar at the University of Hawaii and Assistant Professor at the Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I received my PhD from the Observatório Nacional, Brazil, for the creation of the open-source software Tesseroid and Fatiando a Terra and for my work on large-scale gravity inversion. My research focuses on inverse problems in potential field geophysics with a heavy dose of open-source software development. Lately, I am developing the Python bindings for the Generic Mapping Tools. I'm passionate about open science and training the next generation of scientists in the best practices for reproducible experiments. Visit www.leouieda.com for more information.
