being Signal Processing, more specifically source and channel coding, my specialization.

Currently I'm working as a software engineer for Dolby France and writting a PhD thesis during my free time.

For a hobby, I'm a official developer at Gentoo Linux where my role is currently package maintenance; however I did some work with the embedded team in the past.
I'm also one of the leads in the development of openchronos-ng, a opensource firmware for the ez430-chronos.

Other than computers I like to wander within Nature, including hiking, camping and skiing. I also enjoy traveling and meeting different cultures.
