Dr Diego Alonso Álvarez is a physicist with 13 years of research experience in academia, including a PhD in semiconductor nanostructures and postdoctoral research on novel solar energy concepts and solar cells. He has learnt first-hand the value and difficulties of developing good software while doing research: his work has consistently involved software development for simulation and laboratory instrument control, and outreach. Diego is a member of the Society of Research Software Engineering and is enthusiastic about promoting good coding practices and software sustainability among other researchers.
