His main focus is on the processing of large scale image data. With robotic microscopes, it is possible to acquire hundreds of thousands of images in a day, and visual inspection of all the images becomes impossible.

Luis started developing open source software in 1998 as a way to apply to real code what he was learning in his computer science courses at the Technical University of Lisbon. In 2004, he started developing in Python and has contributed to several open source libraries in this language. He is the lead developer on mahotas, the popular computer vision package for Python, and is the contributor of several machine learning codes.
