my name is Quentin Francois (Resume), 24 years old, geek, sportsman and Ph.D. student in a company called Robeauté and in the ISIR laboratory at Sorbonne University. I share my profesional time between these institutions. This is a particular french thesis type (Cifre thesis) which allows me to work for a company with the support of an academic laboratory. I'm a mechatronics engineer, graduated from INSA Strasbourg. During these five years of studies I have developed some skills in mechanics, electronics and programming which allow me to work in multi-field domains like robotics, transport systems, health technologies, ... I spent one study semester abroad, in Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in the microtechnologies section. This experience was amazing, I discovered a lot of domains and especially bioengineering, microsystems, bioelectronics and microfabrication. Moreover, the contact with research laboratories have confirmed my desire to push Sciences forward.
Out of the professionnal world, I like sports and especially team sports. I have played football since I was 10. I particularly enjoy football because it combines collective aspect and technicality. I was very active in my two football clubs : player, captain, trainer of young players, webmaster and member of communication work group. I'm also fond of travel and new cultures discovery (the background is a photo of a roadtrip in West Canada). Actually, I love to discover Paris by cycling. I've a passion for computing and new technologies. Moreover, I like to realize some computing personnal projects as websites, server, programs, ... Finally I love to discover exhibitions, museums, opera, concert or conferences and to spend some time to read about new trends in computing, sciences, management but also fantastic books just for fun.
