The best of both worlds

comparison between NumPy, Cython and Cython with the OpenCL solver

Sometimes, rejecting unfeasible ideas early enough is a crucial step towards actually solving a problem. In my quest to speed up the ocean modeling framework Veros, I considered the option of restructuring the existing pure Python code in order to

Cheers to the wee Visualization of a Well-Log correlation!

Greetings from Edinburgh 🙂 During the past few weeks I have been able to finalize the project task that I have been assigned and I am very very excited for that. In a nutshell, a Python based code was developed

That’s hot

Over the past decades, the planet has been experiencing worldwide climate change. In particular, the global warming process is characterized by drastic weather events, such as long periods of drought, or short intense precipitation. These can crucially affect vegetation and

Under the spell of Athena (and Jupiter)

It was a very very long trip, which began on Sunday at 2 p.m. and ended on Monday at 11 pm (with a 15-hours stopover in Milan), but finally, I landed in Athens! Since first sight from the plane, I understood this was

Greece. A place to be.

Random View in Greece. Get used to it, because it's that beautiful everywhere here.

Choosing Greece and BRFAA, Zoe Cournia lab, for my PRACE Summer of HPC destination was probably one of the best decisions of my life. To be honest, the project was pretty difficult sometimes and I had a few days of

What’s in a virtual screening dataset?

In my previous blogpost, I explained the main objectives of my project. During these weeks, I have focused towards the data analysis side of HPC rather than working on optimizing a program that runs on a super computer. I have been working to

Selecting the true magical bullets

In the early 20th century, Paul Ehrlich laid the intelectual foundation of modern drug-design research through his inspirational concept of ‘magical bullets’. These ‘bullets’ are small chemical compounds with the ability to bind to biological targets, such as proteins or nucleic acids,
