# fa.bianp.net

My name is Fabian Pedregosa. I am currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellow between ETH Zurich and UC Berkeley.

My research spans optimization, machine learning and neuroimaging. I also have a passion for open source software. If you share some of these interests, drop me a line, chances are we find something to talk about: f@bianp.net .

I completed my PhD at INRIA Saclay (Paris region, France) in 2015. There, I focused on the application of machine learning techniques to functional neuroimaging datasets and had the chance of working with Alexandre Gramfort and Francis Bach. After that I had the chance of spending two wonderful years at Sierra team under the supervision of Alexandre D'Aspremont. See my CV for more details.

### Social

Most of my code can be found in Github. I also post my slides in Slideshare and you will find all of my papers on Google Scholar. You can also follow me on twitter.

# Software

### Repos

I enjoy contributing code to open source projects. Here are the ones I am most proud of:

## scikit-learn

David Cournapeau started this project in 2007. I took over the project in January since 2010, made the first public release the 1st February 2010 and have been developer, maintainer and release manager until January 2012. I currently contribute ocasionally.

### memory-profiler

line-by-line memory consumption for Python code. I started this project in 2012 and are the current maintainer and lead developer. This project won the best poster award at the EuroScipy 2012 conference.

### SymPy

SymPy is a Computer Algebra System written in Python. Originally written by Ondrej Certik, I was the first contributor to join the project. I’ve made important contributions to this project in the period 2007-2009, including a Google Summer of code scolarship in 2010 to improve the logic module.

### SciPy

I have contributed some code to improve the linear algebra module, including the linalg.solve_triang function introduced in 0.9 and some improvements to orthogonal decomposition appeared in the 0.10 series.

# Personal

I am married with Valentina Borghesani. She is a great inspiration on so many levels, and I owe her so much.

### Music

Until 2010 I used to play in a pop band called Los Esclavos. Available records are

And before that, I had a band called DoDo, and made a record
