Knowledge engineering consulting - Research and development

As an engineer and holding a PhD in computer science, I can help you set up a relevant exploitation of your data: from the modeling of information to its collection, cleaning, exploration and visualization, to serve as a support for their analysis. In order to make your data “speak”, one of the challenges is to make them intelligible, via interactive and dedicated presentations that I can design and / or develop. Reflection on the issues of information modeling and visualization can also shed new light and new questions on research practices.

A practitioner of interdisciplinarity, I can interact with and bridge the gap between different communities, taking advantage of my experience built through projects related to Digital Humanities, media studies, education, arts...

I can bring contributions in different phases of your projects: questioning practices, finding innovative solutions, setting up experimental or operational devices, analysis of uses, scientific promotion ...

Do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your concerns.

I can share my knowledge and expertise in multiple areas, to a variety of audiences: students, researchers, practitioners...

Free Software

I develop and contribute mainly to Free/Libre Software. I am the main developer of the Advene video annotation software, the author and maintainer of the python-vlc bindings and have contributed to some projects such as:

Most of the software I produce is on my Github account.
