About Me

A picture of me

Welcome!

My name is Henrique Pereira Coutada Miranda. Currently I am a Post-doc in Physics and Materials Science at the Université catholique de Louvain.

Here you will find small scripts, games and programs that I implemented and want to share with everyone.
Some of these projects are still under development.
