Welcome

I am a computer scientist, with knowledge on both programming (system, parallel, object, functional, logical, constraints, scientific programming) and computer science theory (algorithmics, computability and complexity, logics and semantics of programming languages, code verification).

I am a free software defender since I got my first computer in the first year of university.

Since March 2019, I am an independant computer science advisor in programming, in leading development projects, and in deploying free software solutions for companies, organisations, people, or anything else ;-)

In parallel, I have founded RevLibre, association loi de 1901, which aims to spread, educate and promote libre software and libre tools, hoping that tomorrow we will build a society that promotes collaboration, autonomy, decentralization, libre common tools, and fairness! In this context I help organize events, digital children after-school sessions, participate in conferences, etc.

Before that I was a research engineer at Inserm in the TAGC lab, in charge of computer science development and infrastructure of the Habermann team at the bioinformatics core facility BCF Calanques.

Prior to that I worked as a research engineer at INRA, in the proteomics platform PAPPSO, in the amazing ferme du Moulon. There, during three years, I developed a free software called MassChroQ, performing quantification of data coming from mass spectrometers. This is by far, my most pleasant and dedicated work I am very proud of having produced together with a wonderful working team.

I also worked for a private company, developing a MOM (Message-Oriented Middleware) software for the exchange of important data flows in different contexts.

Independantly of my working context (private company or research laboratory, biology, other science or computer science) what I like the most is learning, adapting myself and solving complex scientific and algorithmics problems, optimising my code, and collaborating with coworkers in a free libre software state of mind.

I am a defender of free software, (free as in "free speech", not only as in "free beer"), I value its collaborative and open way of working, together with the liberty and the sharing in its use.

Moreover, the free software philosophy, guides me as a social human being. Computers and what we produce with them, are tools to humans. We should be able to use, share and modify these tools so that they better fit our needs, these tools should be respectful, transparent, secure, ethical and not handle personal data to third-partys. As digital tools grow more and more present in our human life, we should be more and more careful that they meet these requirements. Nowadays, I can see that only free software, is able to achieve this.

Try it, don't be afraid, ask for help if you need, me or other activists around, there is always a free software community willing to kindly help near your place or on the Internet. You will learn a lot while freeing yourself.
