I am a post-doc at "La Sapienza" University of Rome, working in the group of Giorgio Parisi. I mostly study disordered systems like amorphous solids, but I am interested in several topics related to statistical physics. I am Mexican and obtained my BSc and MSc degrees in the National University of Mexico, and then moved to Rome for my PhD.
The CALiPPSO.jl package implements a new algorithm for producing disordered spheres packings with very high accuracy. The algorithm reaches the critical jamming point of hard spheres through a chain of constrained linear optimization problems. CALiPPSO.jl exploits the functionality of JuMP for modelling and is thus compatible with several optimizers. In collaboration with C. Artiaco, G. Parisi, and F. Ricci Tersenghi.
