I am a mathematician and software engineer. I worked for large companies (Investment Banks in London and Amsterdam) as well as startups (mostly London). I studied mathematics and computer science in Paris (Université Paris Diderot), at Birmingham (the University of Birmingham) and in London (King's College London). Nowadays, I am studying and practicing the Force at the Guardian.
