Previous: Ecole Centrale, Lycée Clemenceau



    I am a young and dynamic generalist engineer, graduated in 2011 from a highly selective french school of engineering (Ecole Centrale de Nantes). After two successful years of expatriation in Northern Ireland (UK), I am looking forward to broaden my international experience and will be available for a new position in Western Europe from September 2013. I am very interested by challenging and cross-functional positions at the border between continuous improvement and quality assurance. References available upon request.
