Ph.D. / Engineer · Computer Science and Networks

Toulouse, France

Welcome to my online portfolio!

I have the chance to work on a daily basis on the definition, the implementation, the deployment and the evaluation of numerous solutions as well as their underlying communication networks.

Curious and rigorous, I am fascinated by new technologies. Beyond their way of working, I am interested in understanding the potential implications when they are used in complex and/or critical environments.

Mobile Application Developer Intern for Satellite Control Centers (SCCs)

Toulouse, France
Airbus Defence and Space

Final 6-month internship at Airbus Defence and Space (ex-Astrium) when I studied at INSA Toulouse.

During this internship, my goal was to develop an application for Airbus’s Satellite Control Centers (SCCs). This application had to be platform-independent (i.e., non-native) to be usable on every smartphone, tablet or computer. Incrementally, I collected various user needs about the features that the application should provide. From that point, I implemented them, performed testing and wrote documentation. An important part of my internship was also dedicated to R&D activities in order to find suitable and open-source softwares regarding some application features (e.g., Network monitoring, Wiki solution, graph visualization).

Skills acquired during this internship:

  • AGILE philosophy and SCRUM method
  • Modern Web programming languages (HTML5, CSS3)
  • Network monitoring (CPU, traffic, alerts) with Zabbix software
  • Responsive CSS implementation for correct display on different devices (PC, tablet, smartphone)
  • Demonstration and presentation of the application to heterogeneous audiences, including high-level Airbus executives by video-conference
  • Planning, sense of responsibility, autonomy
February 2014 - July 2014

QoS Analyst Intern for Mobile Networks

Portet-Sur-Garonne (31), France
Orange

As part of the Detection-Analyze-Orientation (DAO) team, my days were divided in two parts. On mornings, I was taking part to the detection process of incidents by analyzing K ey Primary Indicators (KPIs) pulled from the Orange Mobile Network. On afternoons, I was joining a development team to help them designing and developping a web-based application called "Juice" to interpret these KPIs.

Skills acquired during this internship:

  • Web programming languages (PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript)
  • Learning and use of the jQuery library
  • SQL database management and SQL queries
  • Planning, sense of responsibility, autonomy
June 2013 - September 2013

Intern worker

Eycheil (09), France
SWM International

Affected in the electrical maintenance service, this one-month worker internship allowed me to discover the industry sector. I mostly performed filter and lighting replacements. I also made small wirings and participated in interventions on various electrical engines.
