Me Who am I?

I am a student at ENS Paris, in Physics and Computer Science. I am mainly interested in subjects at the interface between Physics and Computer Science, especially in quantum information and quantum computation, mostly from a theoretical and computer science point of view. I am also interested in quantum information, quantum computation and robotics. I have gained some experiences in these domains thanks to past internships.

Experience Experience

Actual and past experiences

  • In charge of hackEns, the student hacklab in the ENS.
  • Participation in the Coupe de France de Robotique, a French robotic tournament, in 2013. The team was ranked 42nd out of 146 challenging teams.
  • Moderator of mailing-lists in the ENS.
  • Former webmaster of the Lycée Sainte-Geneviève website.

Selection of personal projects

  • Participation in the CitizenWatt project, supported by Paris city hall. I was involved in the schematics design and I coded the backend software.
  • A proof-of-concept of a client-side search engine, in JavaScript, using Bloom filters.
  • One (among many) code using the Velib' API. A webapp using the Velib' API to get a Velib app on FirefoxOS.
  • A simple experiment to control a presentation remotely, using a webserver.
  • A small Python module to work with scientific papers.
  • A tool to automatically extract and fetch openaccessness of references in a given paper.
