Curriculum Vitae



  • Since September 2016, Software engineer @ Improbable, London

    Improbable is the creator of SpatialOS, a platform that enables a new kind of immense and scalable games worlds and simulations. It allows developers to concentrate on the dynamics of their new realities and abstracts away the reliance on a variable number of servers and logical "workers" that power the simulation.

  • From 2013 till 2016, R&D engineer @ Kalray, Grenoble

    Kalray is a fabless semi-conductor company designing and supporting its own manycore processors: the MPPA family. This industry position accounted for half of my time as Ph.D student and offered the opportunity to implement my research work in an industrial environment. Responsabilities:

    • Compiler Research and Development (GCC, LLVM & other tools):
      • Design and implementation of compiler optimization passes from scratch
      • Continuing the design and implementation of an in-house optimization tool
      • Fine-tuning the GCC back-end for the Kalray architecture
    • Expertise and design of a Network-on-Chip architecture (including a filed patent)
    • Reporting for large-scale collaborative projects

  • From 2013 till 2016, Research Assistant @ INRIA Grenoble, Grenoble

    Member of the Corse research team as part of my Ph.D. Development of heuristical tiling solvers, LLVM passes and the GraphUtilities library for convex partitioning and reachability queries.

    • Introduction to programming and algorithmics
    • Advanced algorithmics
    • Logical circuitry and hardware design
    • End-of-year programming project

  • From 2013 till 2016, Teaching Assistant @ Université Grenoble-Alpes and Ensimag, Grenoble

    Position independant from my Ph.D program. Performing as T.A for multiple courses at the University of Grenoble and the Ensimag engineering school. Including both student support during practice sessions as well as full teaching responsabilities for some courses.

    • Introduction to programming and algorithmics
    • Advanced algorithmics
    • Logical circuitry and hardware design
    • End-of-year programming project

  • From February 2012 till July 2012, MSc. Internship @ Laboratoire Informatique de Grenoble, Grenoble
