Me in front of the dome of Val-de-Grâce church, Paris

I am an Engineer, and I have a PhD. from MINES ParisTech (aka l'École nationale supérieure des mines de Paris), a top French engineering school — which is now part of the PSL (Paris Sciences & Lettres) Research University.

A copy of my résumé is available here.


After finishing my secondary school years in Lycée Saint-Louis, Lorient, Brittany, I attended what is called in France the Classe Préparatoire aux Grandes Écoles, or simply prépa, cursus, in Lycée Dupuy de Lôme, in the same city.

The prépa is a two-year intensive, maths-focused cursus, and ends with national competitive exams, offering places in the Grandes Écoles, which are French engineering schools.

Having succeeding in entering MINES ParisTech, I then spent three years there (in the middle of Paris) before graduating from it. I moved afterwards to Fontainebleau (~60km from Paris, big French royal palace), as a PhD. student in the Centre de recherche en informatique (Computer Science Research Center – CRI).

I successfully defended my thesis on November the 30th, 2016.

Eventually, I spent one more year there as a post-doctoral fellow.
