Projects and other activities

I participated in the development of the scientific application Daydreaming, with financial help from the city of Paris through Science en poche. I started a scientific blog that I plan to revive soon. With the Gatsby Unit we participated in a Kaggle hosted seizure detection challenge and ranked 9/200 and we presented our work at a seizure focused conference. I’ve been involved in consultancy work with the company Swhere applying machine learning techniques to solve business problems.
