Technical Expert (Eclipse & Modeling) at CS Systèmes d'Information
I started my career at Atos, working on TOPCASED (https://www.polarsys.org/topcased R.I.P.), then migrating its components to Papyrus and Polarsys. I also participated on implementing the Activity and Sequence diagrams in Papyrus.
Then, I went to CS Systèmes d'Information, where I still work as an Eclipse and Modeling expert. I have since specialized in space modeling, working for the CNES (French Space Agency) or the ESA (European Space Agency). Yet, I still develop general Eclipse and modeling expertise to assist other projects and provide trainings in my company.
