I am Head of Research and Development at ActiveViam. I joined ActiveViam soon after its creation back in 2005 and have been leading the team in charge of designing, developing and supporting ActiveViam’s in-memory analytics solutions. As one of the first employees, I was heavily involved in the design of ActivePivot, ActiveViam’s in-memory OLAP engine.
Before joining ActiveViam, I worked several years for a consulting firm specialized in the financial sector. From my years in consulting, I developed a strong customer orientation and I am keen on keeping a close eye on customers’ use cases. I graduated from Ecole Polytechnique and Telecom Paris.
