Currently working as a research engineer in the Alpine Ecology Laboratory in Grenoble, I'm developing a software suite for the harvesting, exploration and analysis of DNA sequences from the Alpine flora in the context of the PhyloAlps project.

During my PhD in the geomatics LIG-STeamer research team, I was involved in Volunteered Geographic Information: I proposed models, methods and tools for building a knowledge base from the OpenStreetMap tags so as to foster open geographic data production and sharing.

Before these doctorate years, I worked as an engineer developing a Flood Historical DataBase together with its acquisition/exploration interface founded by the Ministry of the Environment. In the mean time, I joined the European project ESPON Database: an online portal for statistical indicators.

In addition to my experience in public research, I also worked, during my Master's, in the Ingénie Agency for creating Web sites for local authorities. I also worked for Georeference Online in Vancouver to build an Aristotelian Ontology Editor.
