The very first thing you should know about myself is that I am a challenger. Do not hesitate to put me to the test. If I do not have the answer right away I will make sure to find it. This being said, let’s talk about my professional development.
I have been working as a mechanical engineer/designer since 2006. During all these years, I worked in various industries :
• Product development and R&D in automotive and aerospace industries;
• Test bench development in automotive and aerospace industries;
• Robotic integration in welding, structural steel industries;
• Industrial machinery design.
I have my master in material engineering. I studied new composite moulding processes to make final parts dedicated to aerospace industry. I published few articles along the way.
Recently I started teaching in mechanical engineering. The courses I gave so far are :
• Introduction to AutoCAD;
• Introduction to machine elements;
• Project management in engineering.
On a more personal scale, I describe myself as an hobbyist. I am a 3D printing enthusiasts, apprentice woodworker, fan of board game and miniature painting.
