Meet our 9th ambassador in 2023, Frédéric Santos

We are delighted to introduce our 9th ambassador in 2023, Frédéric Santos!

After a master’s degree in applied mathematics, Frédéric has been working since 2010 as a data analyst in PACEA, a research laboratory in archaeological sciences at the CNRS and University of Bordeaux. His research activities are focused on statistical methods allowing for establishing the biological profile of individuals in biological or forensic anthropology, such as age and sex estimation. He is mainly an R user, but has a broad interest in free and open-source software. Frédéric also teaches good practices for scientific programming and open science to several audiences, ranging from master’s students to researchers in humanities and social sciences. Specifically involved in the topics of code sharing and computational reproducibility, becoming a Software Heritage ambassador is a natural extension of his commitment to open science. In his field, which is getting more and more technical with a heavy use of 3D imaging and, more recently, various applications of artificial intelligence, there is a strong need to ensure the long-term availability of source code software.

If you want to contact him or to learn more about our mission, he will be happy to answer you back!

And do not forget! We are looking for enthusiastic organizations and individuals to volunteer as ambassadors to help grow the Software Heritage community. If you too want to become an ambassador, please tell us a bit about yourself and your interest in the mission of Software Heritage.
