    Big Bad Wolf
    • Designed the entire technical portion of the project, including the cloud services, tech stack, and production pipelines.
    • Developed the web catalog in Vue.js using Firebase cloud services and interacting with a Unity project using Secured Web Sockets.
    • Created the Unity Viewer. Loaded 3D models at runtime securely from Firebase. Translated glTF shaders to Unity shaders, and pulled information from the catalog.
    • Built two kinds of database managers, one using editor scripting in Unity, and another one using Vue.js and Three.js.
    • Satisfied our client (Pierret) to such an extent, that they proudly used the product in the Batibouw showcase. Our solution had a large advantage over the competitors.
    Technologies: Three.js, gltf, Vue, Firebase, Unity
  • Founder

    2018 - 2020

    Cité des Sciences et de l'industrie
    • Built an interactive and dynamic Voronoi tessellation news wall in Unity using news from Python web mining scripts, and controlled by a homemade web CMS.
    • Developed a 3D interactive map of France in Unity to display the current job offers in the industry of video games using the data of AFJV.
    • Created multiple 3D graphs, models, timelines, and trees in Unity to display custom data from a web CMS.
    • Managed the heavy public offer and paperwork, and was awarded the project as well as a two-year agreement.
    Technologies: PHP, JavaScript, Firebase, Python, Unity
  • Lead Developer

    2018 - 2018
    Fresnoy
    • Developed multiple servers to read sensors and update a neural network accordingly to generate text output from different corpora.
    • Designed DMX servers to update lights, foggers, heaters, and more depending on the state of the neural network.
    • Soldered electrical sensors to gather input from a biosphere. Video filters were also used.
    Technologies: Neural Networks, Node.js, Python

    • Created benchmarks for the back end to analyze performance issues in the automated language computation.
    • Improved the software in such a way that it resulted in a scientific publication.
    Technologies: Java, Python, JavaScript

Experience

  • Brandspace

    An interactive catalog for 3D models. I was the lead developer on this project, making most of the technical decisions and coding all the functionalities. The project was challenging since it used Unity 3D and Unreal Engine to render the models, cloud to centralize the data, and web interfaces to interact with the database and upload new models. My participation was game-changing since it allowed me to completely satisfy the first client and greatly help the fundraising initiative.

  • Deep Q-learning in Robocode
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1n8vTwbtmyfh9FXyoLfHBdL4Q02zfG_05

    This research was about neural networks in the robocode game made in Java and using the library Eclipse Deeplearning4j. Many models have been implemented, using multiple hidden layer types with different structures.
