Here's who I am & what I do

Hello there! I am Eduardo and I just received my PhD in Physics! I am excited about problems that require ingenuity and modeling, ranging from hard problems in Physics such as: If all matter is made from atoms, then why are only some materials magnetic? Why are some good conductors/insulators? To questions such as how can the Houston Astros exploit statistics to better understand their rivals and win the World Series again?


I am also an amateur guitar player and songwriter, trying to start recording some songs with my brother who plays keyboard. I am a huge fan of board games and cooking with friends at home.
