French is my mother tongue.
I have undergone several specialized training programs to enhance and refine my communication skills, especially when engaging with individuals from diverse backgrounds.
Daily, I interact with multi-cultural, English-speaking team. My regular communication involves collaborating with team members located in various countries, including China, Romania, Great Britain, Switzerland (UK), California (where some peculiar slang is used), and Oklahoma.
I read and watch a vast amount of information, articles, youtube channels, tutorials in English daily.
Furthermore, I am confident in engaging in discussions with my CEO and colleagues in English or doing presentations in front of up to 30 people – including investors and board members. Writing emails, documents, creating content for websites and posts, and drafting letters pose no challenges for me.
To further enhance my writing, I occasionally utilize ChatGPT.
(Example, my original sentence was: To improve my writing, I now sometime utilize ChatGPT to enhance my writing.)
I evaluate myself as C1
My proficiency in German is not particularly high, despite having studied it during mandatory school and high school. I am capable of reading and responding to simple emails, understanding articles, and using it for basic tasks like travel-related communication.
While I can follow some discussions in German, I haven’t had much practice with the language since high school. Therefore, I believe I would need a few months of consistent usage to regain confidence in my German language skills.
I’m interested by many different technical subjects.
I appreciate innovative art that blends technology with traditional art forms.
I like walking, skiing, biking, swimming, gardening and be creative in cooking.
On a more technical aspect, I sometime 3d print using blender to build my models, and a 3d printer to print them.
Machine learning is currently one of my strong interest.
- Learning Python and learning main machine learning algorithms.
- Testing the many different open-source projects in particular in the domain of image generation (ex: Stable Diffusion), code generation, 3d reconstruction (NerfStudio), text generation (ChatGPT, LLaMA 2, FredoomGPT, Vicuna, and hundred of other alternatives).
- Reading technical, societal and legal articles linked to machine learning.
I have a strong interest when software meets hardware in particular with Internet of Things technologies.
From a software perspective
- Python and Bash
- Time series databases (influxdb) and graphs
- OpenHab and Home assistant
- Tuya and tasmota
From an hardware and protocol perspective
- NFC, Bluetooth, BLE, LoRa, Wifi
- Espressif, ESP32, ESP8266, Sonoff
- Soldering, electronic components (simple)
- I2C, Serial, etc..
Having worked with three startups, two in a top role, I have developed a keen interest in enhancing the software and infrastructure’s maturity and quality. Continually expanding my toolbox has always been a priority for me.
Agility has captivated my attention as it aligns with my desire to promptly address stakeholder requirements and user needs. While I find inspiration from various methods, I do not consider myself an expert in any of them (except scrum).
- Management of the work: Scum, leadership trainings.
- Clarification of the product and link to work management : Prince 2, Redmine (Jira)
- Improvement of our development and feedback: Continuous integration, DevOps, Cloud, Frequent releases (dev, stage and production), KISS
- Architecture: Archimate and Togaf.
- Norms: IEC 62304, ISO 13486 (Similar to ISO 9001).
Green energy and resource optimization are two topics that deeply captivate me.
Solar panels and energy consumption optimization hold a special place in my heart. That’s one of the reasons why I am passionate about IoT—using it to monitor our environment and maximize energy usage efficiently.
I love collecting and processing data. Having installed my own photovoltaic system, I delved into various aspects of photovoltaic and gained a comprehensive understanding of many different aspects of this domain and I can easily advise people on the real / fair value of having energy generation systems, batteries or electric cars.
