I am currently working as an manager attaché at the Ministry of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation (MFWB), an institution which implements Government policy, after approval by Parliament. Within the Service général des Affaires Transversales, I am serving as a manager both for an IT development project and for the accident at work of the members of teaching staff service. I am also lecturing in several higher education institutions.
Regarding my education, I got a PhD in Engineering in November 2013 from the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain). My thesis is about applying formal method techniques to the analysis of human-machine interactions. I also got a Master in Computer Science Engineering degree from the Louvain School of Engineering (EPL) and an Advanced Master in Pedagogy in Higher Education, both from the same university.
Moreover, I am interested in the Computer Science Education field, in particular to better teach computer science and to integrate IT technologies in education. I am the founder and President of the Computer Science and IT in Education ASBL (CSITEd), a nonprofit organisation whose main goal is to promote informatics as a science, in particular for primary and secondary schools pupils. It is also on behalf of this organisation that I am the official Belgian representative in the Bebras community.
Finally, I am also a partner of EDITx, a private company proposing IT related challenges connecting educators and professionals with students.
