ABOUT ME:

My background is in physics, but I enjoy exploring many other fields too. See for example some miscellaneous computational explorations that I shared on the Wolfram Blog: https://blog.wolfram.com/author/jofre-espigule-pons/

In the past, I did research on mathematical physics and I studied several biophysics models to understand how birds are able to detect earth's magnetic field (an open mystery). I also took part of a lab experiment to show that humans can detect a single photon with their naked eye.

In 2015, I attended the Wolfram Summer School and I had a lot of fun trying to develop a “Shazam for birds” app.

Since 2016, I’ve been working as a consultant for Wolfram Research. I’m part of the community moderation team and I mentored students at the Wolfram Summer School during the last few years.

Recently, I’ve been actively recording biodiversity data during my hiking adventures using iNaturalist. At WTC19, I did a presentation on how to import such biodiversity data using Wolfram Language and perform analysis, create geographic species distributions, identifying species using machine learning techniques, etc. You can check it here: https://www.wolfram.com/broadcast/video.php?v=3010

PS: I submitted a function related to biodiversity to the Wolfram Function Repository called TaxonomicNearest which gives the list of taxa to which a specified taxon is nearest.
