About me

I’m a young French Software Engineer, currently working at Mobeye.

Studies

I’ve been passionate about computers since I was a little kid. At the age of 9, I started writing my own programs in QuickBasic on an old Windows 3.11 computer.

I always kept practicing on my free time, and self-taught myself a few languages (VB6, VB.Net, PHP, C#, Javascript…)

Engineering School

When it was time to choose my career path, there was no hesitation that I wanted to become a software developer. Since I felt I needed a more formal education in order to learn the best practices, I enrolled at the Institut Supérieur d’Electronique de Paris (also known as ISEP), a French top engineering school located in the heart of Paris.

I graduated at the end of 2013, and was honored to be my promotion’s valedictorian.

Stanford

I was lucky to be able to go to Stanford as a Visiting Student Researcher, where I worked in Evan Reed’s Materials Computation and Theory Group where I analyzed material physics simulation results using machine learning and graph algorithms.

I also followed several courses there, which was awesome and allowed me to increase my Computer Science knowledge.

Online

I’ve been following online courses (also knwon as MOOC) for a few years now. I started on Udacity and am now following a few more on Coursera.

Hobbies

I’m not just a developper! I also enjoy a few hobbies

  • Reading has been my passion since I knew how to! I’m particularly fond of the Fantasy and Science Fiction genres, but I’ve also been reading other things when they caught my attention (looking at you, Ken Follett!)

  • Watching series is also nice! I’m currently a fan of South Park, Game of Thrones, Sherlock as well as Rick and Morty. (I also watch Adventure Time but shh, it’s a secret!)

  • Sports? I’m generally not a fan, but I like a few of them: Hiking, Skiing and Biking for instance!

  • I really love traveling! It’s a passion for me, I try to visit everything I can, including in Paris! Here’s a list of places I visited:
