Academic Curriculum

Autumn 2015 - Present

PhD. in Deep Learning Solutions for Manufacturing Applications.

University of Technology of Compiegne

Thesis directors : Alexandre DURUPT (UTC) and Dimitris KIRITSIS (EPFL).
Co-Supervisor : Matthieu Bricogne (UTC)

PhD Subject : Deep Learning Applications for Vision Based Systems in the manufacturing industry.

During my PhD. I had the opportunity to work on numerous fascinating projects and challenges:

  • DMU-Net: an open-source dataset oriented toward the manufacturing industry to perform recognition task in industrial environments.
  • DICE - DMU Imagery Classification Engine: a deep convolutional neural network to perform 2D and 3D data classification concurrently.
  • Manufacturing Visual Security Kit: a Deep Learning toolkit to insure that no object can be damaged oo any human can be hurt during a manufacturing process.
During my PhD. I also had the opportunity to be invited to work at the TU Berlin and Fraunhofer IPK in a research exchange in the team of Prof. Stark

TOEIC : 975/990

Test of English for International Communication

Developped and organized by the US-based company : ETS, the TOEIC Listening and Reading Test is a two-hour multiple-choice test consisting of 200 questions evenly divided into listening comprehension and reading comprehension. Each candidate receives independent scores for listening and reading comprehension on a scale from 5 to 495 points. The total score adds up to a scale from 10 to 990 points.

A Score of 975 corresponds to a C1 Level in the European Scale.

Professional Experiences

February 2015 - July 2015

Data Scientist and C++/Python Developer


I have done a 6 months Internship inside the company DeltaCAD under the supervision of Harvey ROWSON.

I have designed and developed a software application to perform mechanical parts recognition and segmentation. The core is developed in C++ which is exposed using a Django as a REST API hosted on AWS (Amazon Cloud).
During this project I benchmarked major machinelearning algorithms and boosting techniques to improve the obtained results.

September 2014 - February 2015

Founder, Head of the organisation and Licence Owner


We are already today the core of innovation and creativity and tomorrow will be too late. It's high time to act in order to shape the world and not just to cope with it. My engineering background relies not only on scientific topics but also on open-mindedness and assumption of responsibility. With the aim of bringing to the future engineers the keys to the great social and technological challenges, we have built TEDxUTCompiegne, and the first event took place on the Tuesday January, 20th 2015.

Videos : Playlist Youtube - TEDxUTCompiègne - January 20, 2015
Official Website : TEDxUTCompiegne.com

Our thema : “Observing, Imaginating, Achieving”.

Three actions verbs that together describe the innovation process. Three action verbs that reflect a willingness to act and understand. Three verbs that lead my way. No other thema could have transmit better my determination to engage myself in the social and technological challenges of tomorrow.

Speakers :

My Work : During the project, I managed and coordinated a team of 13 people, set up the meeting agendas and the objectives. I actively participated in the Speakers selection process. I organized the team to meet the required deadlines and solved the logistical problems. Feel free to ask me anything about this fantastic adventure.

September 2013 - February 2014

Business Automation Analyst


I have done a 6 months Internship inside the Information System Shared Service of Valeo Confort and Driving Assistance under the supervision of Marc Laurent.

In order to prepare a SAP migration, I have developed a tool to clean the data from the SD Module. The tool was a developed in VBA in Excel and performed a Statistical Analysis on clients’ data from our own system from to those in the global SAP system. The goal was to match the clients of the two systems and identify those who didn’t exist in the global system and needed to be created.

My Skills

I'm not a big fan of any rating to judge about skill mastering because I don't really get what's a 100% mastering and how should I grade myself without any bias. So, in consequence let's play a little recruiting game, here is my keyword bingo, if you are able to figure out which of these are pokemon and which aren't, we will definitely have some interesting discussion (no preference order given, some shuffling was used):

Tensorflow, Vulpix, Scikit-Learn, Networking, Jupyter, PySpark, Keras, Onyx, Pandas, Python, C++, PyTorch, Numpy, Django, Git, Flask, Blastoise, Docker, Caffe, PaaS/IaaS (AWS, Bluemix, GCP), Magikarp, OpenCV, CloudFoundry, Continuous Integration, Snorlax, Linux Administration (Debian and Ubuntu)

I work, almost daily with this complete technology stack, a quick look at my Github Profile or my technical blog might give you better insights than any paragraph I could write. And if you want more specific details you am still available to answer any question you could have (e.g. what is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything = It's 42)
