I currently work as a research engineer for OR2C, a regional observatory on coastal risk management where I contribute to GIS data management, data analysis with ML/DL, and to web application development.

I am also associate researcher to Centre François Viète. I’m interested in citizen sciences, and contribute to a crowdsourcing project about Comédie-Italienne (XVIIIth century). I also investigate epistemology issues related to data processing in digital humanities projects.

I graduated from École Centrale de Nantes, with a Master in engineering (mechanics and computer science), and a PhD in industrial engineering during which I specialized in knowledge management and data science for digital humanities.
