Valentin is a software engineer interested in the architectures of high-performance number crunching with Python. Specifically, he is interested in low-level aspects such interfacing Python with C code, strategies for efficient memory allocation, avoiding redundant memory copies and exploiting the memory hierarchy for accelerated computation. Occasionally, he flirts with machine-learning. In the past he has worked on psychophysics data analysis, large scale brain simulations, analytical engines for business intelligence and large-scale data-center monitoring. He wrote a book about using the Git version control system and has contributed to a diverse selection of over 50 open source projects. He currently resides in Berlin and works as a freelance software engineer and consultant.
