About me

My name is Simon Tamayo and this is my personal portfolio. I love science, travels, scuba diving, snowboarding, motorcycles and squash.  I love the world at large, I wish to live in many countries, I want to taste many foods and meet all kinds of people.

I am 37 years old, I was born in Medellin (Colombia). I lived in Paris (France) for 15 years, I went there for my studies and ended up staying a bit longer in the city of lights. Recently I moved back to Colombia. I am still a work in progress: I would like to be a better painter, a better scientist and a better human being. I would love to learn to pilot airplanes, to sail, to play the piano and to speak many languages.

About my scientific life

To learn more about my scientific and professional life, you can check the 2 books that I have written (about Machine Learning and Optimisation); you can also visit my linkedin profile and my github repository.

Research is a fundamental part of my work as a scientist. Here you will find a list of my publications, which summarize the topics that I am passionate about:
