About

I graduated with a Master degree in Mechanical Engineering (Focused on Fluid Mechanics) at University of Nancy, France in 2009. To accomplish my studies, I did my master thesis at the University of Canterbury (Christchurch), where I worked on a problem of fluid structure interaction (FEA Simulation).
After working on Different projects in France (Construction, Airbus, Airbags), I decided to move to New Zealand in 2015 where I gained more experience in product design. I worked for a company making industrial shade products, and then I spend 3 years designing industrial spraying system worth 400 000 euros. I am now looking for new challenges.
