I have been coding since I am a kid. After a B.Sc. in Math at Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh),
I got a Ph.D. in Computer Graphics at INPG (Grenoble). I then worked in several projects, with physicists, biologists,
and now with quants (the math part of finance).
So, on one hand, I think I am a good coder with strong math skill. And I consider my-self a Full-Stack Hacker:
- Full-Stack because I make decisions based on all involved components and efficiency of the development process
- Hacker because I like to find and take advantages from the subtleties-that-matter
And on the other hand, during my career working with many different people and topics, I became particularly proficient for
the design of numerical workflow in complex, interdisciplinary, projects. Also, I developed a strong managerial sense
based on two main principles:
- Honesty: to put it simply, the expectation of all collaborators, and clients, should be clear
- Short cycles and agility: every communication, development and test steps should be as short, frequent and
automatized as possible. Agile methods are here to help us.
