Work


Summary

I've been working with software for a while, especially product software. I can plan and execute everything needed to build and ship a product, from human organization to technical systems.

My experience is varied and in different sectors (software, web, health, data, machine learning, AI, infra). Polyglot developer with a previous background in AI research, I go beyond the technical to support the project or people. I believe that the success of a project depends on many aspects such as project management or coaching: it's not just the code.

Now I focus on projects that address basic needs (e.g., food, shelter, transportation, education, healthcare) or emerging global challenges (e.g., climate, biodiversity, resources, energy).
