Software

I have a long history of contributing to open source software, especially in the scientific Python ecosystem. Below is a list of packages I’ve worked on over the years.

Matplotlib

This is where I stated my adventure in open source. I filed my first feature request in April 2016, opened my first pull request in May 2016, and became a maintainer in January 2017. Since then I’ve done a wide range of fixing bugs, triaging issues, adding new features, and improving documentation. I am not currently an active maintaner, but still occasionally open bug reports and review pull requests.

Recently I have taken on some freelance work to add new features to the interactive widgets. If there are larger features you’re interested in seeing added, I’m currently open to taking on small freelance projects.

sunpy

I started contributing to sunpy in Nov 2017, became a maintainer shortly after that, and helped see sunpy through from the transition to the fist stable version (v1.0).

I am currently the release manager. I’ve previously undertaken major re-writing of the core Map class, added support for reading widely used file formats, and made significant performance improvements.

napari

I’ve contributed issue reports and pull requests for various packages within the plugin ecosystem of napari, a multi-dimensional image viewer for Python.
