I graduated my PhD in Engineering, Product development and innovation in September 2015. After a small career as research scientist, I decided to move forward and work in an industrial company.

Since September 2018 I am Software Control Engineer by BOBST Grenchen AG, a manufacturer of machines for corrugated cartons, where I am in charge of the development of software interfaces (for production reporting or job management, interfacing with ERP/MRP systems) and machine control software (position, speed regulation of laminating machines, sheet aligners).

My native language is french and also speak english and german fluently.
