I am a first year computer science student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Rennes, FR.
You will find some information about me on this website, along with some projects I would like to share. In the future, it could as well serve as a way of showcasing my personnal and/or professionnal work in the various fields I am interested in.
Two years of intensive training in mathematics, physics, chemistry but also litterature and philosophy before the competitive exams which have to be passed in order to enter a so-called Grande Ecole.
Scientific section with mechanics, electronics and mathematics specialisations.
Summa cum laude distinction.
Development of a simple raytracing program for the PROG1 (Programming Fundamentals) course at ENS Rennes. The final raytracer, developed during three days, features spherical and planar geometries and a simple light interaction algorithm demonstrating Blinn-Phong shading.
I once stumbled upon the OSDEV Wiki page and I immediately wanted to try it out by myself. I already had some programming experience in C and assembly language, so I decided to give it a try. A few weeks later, I had my own little homemade OS kernel running in 32-bit protected mode and capable of simple interactions with a FAT32 filesystem using a basic terminal (you could use commands such as ls, touch, echo and even cat!).
In the beginning, this application was an idea that came to life after I discovered modern OpenGL programming along with one of my friends. We realised later that ShaderToy had the exact same purpose. We built a GLSL shader viewer and interactive editor in modern C++ using Qt and OpenGL 4.2. It was a lot of fun to program, debug, test and experiment with!
I have been interested in computer science since the age of 13, when I began to program in C with one of my schoolmates just for fun. I learned a lot since then and I continue to learn amazing new things everyday! My interests include system programming and 3D rendering.
Besides computer science, I also like maths very much and I enjoy tinkering and experimenting with some electronics.
I have also been playing the piano for over 10 years and I like to spend my holidays walking and reading mostly fantasy-related books.
