I have been interested in the possibilities offered by the IoT for many years. At POST, I now help to develop innovative, tailor-made solutions for business that rely on objects being able to transmit information. Through the IoT, we are exploring new horizons, taking advantage of POST's dynamism and its firm commitment to investing in this technology.

I have a university degree in business administration and a Master's degree in computer science applied to business management. This dual skillset has enabled me to build up varied professional experiences in business support functions (legal, economic, marketing, etc.) and other more technical functions, such as IT. After starting my career at the Centre de Recherche Public Gabriel Lippmann, on an IT redesign project, and then at Software AG, I joined the POST group. I was soon working, as a team leader, on projects to develop web and mobile solutions, and then M2M solutions.

I have always been interested in innovation as a vehicle for societal change. I like to be involved in the development of innovative solutions. New technologies, combined with the world of telecoms, open up an almost infinite field of possibilities and a fulfilling playground for anyone who, like me, is attracted by the internet of things (IoT) and the potential to use big data for new (and not-so-new) purposes.

More generally, I like to understand the world around me and adapt to societal changes, such as the collaborative society we are moving towards.
