Welcome to my homepage! Here, you will find some information about my studies at École Centrale Paris, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), including some of the stuff that I wrote (Master's Thesis, other publications, technical reports...), mainly, but not exclusively, in the domain of Artificial Intelligence (in particular, Model-based Programming, and Distributed Constraint Optimization) and robotic space exploration.

Rotaract is a program of Rotary International for young, dynamic men and women who want to join their forces and enthusiasm to organize and take part in social community projects, at the local, national, and international levels.

I have served as Secretary of the Rotaract Club of Lausanne in 2008-2009, and I have since been serving as Webmaster.

The mission of first aid volunteers is to respond to every-day medical emergencies on the EPFL campus. First aid volunteers are trained to deliver cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and to use automated external defibrilators (AED).

I have also been hired part-time by the SHE service to deliver the obligatory basic safety training (FOBS) to new EPFL employees.
