Welcome to my homepage. It is intended to introduce myself to you, and to present some of my projects.

Got it :)

Multi-label classifier (2017)   computer vision

For my Master Thesis, I worked for a company to develop a multi-label classifier that could handle 500 labels. These labels were either descriptive of the image composition, or of the brand represented. That enabled them to enrich their Data Asset Management and also correct images that were wrongly labeled.

Patents in Switzerland (2016)   nlp

Collected for over 50 years of patents abstracts authenticated in Switzerland. Computed topic extraction (LDA) and dimension reduction (Fisher-LDA) to visualize the semantic path of innovation in Switzerland through the last 50 years: from chemistry to information sciences.

Wine Price Forecasting (2016)   data-viz

Scraped weather, price and grade data for all french wine regions. Built an interactive dashboard to give data-driven back-ups on weather, wine quality and wine prices correlations. Also explored regression models to forecast the first retail price of a wine given weather and its past grades.

Error detection in archives (2015)  nlp

The goal of the project was to detect and correct errors introduced in the Le Temps digital archive (~4M news articles published over the last 2 centuries). Developed a pipeline to detect errors with 93% precision, enabling to spot outlying years with particularly high error rates and giving insights about OCR error types.

Extra-professional Activities

5 Seasons Project (2015)

Organized my gap year with 5 projects, one per season, within Travels (Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia) and Traditional Mandarin courses in Taipei (Taïwan)

Ingénieurs Nomades (2014)

Participated to a crazy charity car raid (4L Trophy) crossing France, Spain and Morocco. Built a student association to promote it inside EPFL that helped over 50 students funding their adventure and getting mechanics lessons. Ingénieurs Nomades is still expanding today.
