Engaged and a bit over-extended sometimes. Padel player addict and a good croquettes cooker.

What were your job(s) before Plume Labs?

I worked as a research engineer in the field of haptics, in a robotics laboratory in Paris.

What made you want to join Plume Labs?

I’ve always been very sensitive to pollution and environmental issues, and working in a company fighting against that was an enormous motivation for me.

What’s the weirdest / craziest / most interesting task you’ve had to do lately at Plume Labs?

I spent a whole day in our storage facilities checking up on 110 Flows manually (with 2 other colleagues) and brainstorming with Chinese colleagues about mechanical solutions, finding awesome solutions, and overcoming language barriers 😉

What’s the biggest pollution spike you’ve recorded with your Flow?

You don’t wanna know… but sadly very high!

My colleagues: I love them! Competent, engaged, helpful, funny, respectful.

What were your job(s) before Plume Labs?

I worked at different levels of the Canadian Government, from a provincial Executive Council Office to the Department of Global Affairs Canada, using tech to put people back in policies.

What made you want to join Plume Labs?

In my experience, complex, international issues like air pollution need people and institutions working together to find solutions. I saw Plume Labs building amazing tools that will put serious power into new hands.

What’s the weirdest / craziest / most interesting task you’ve had to do lately at Plume Labs?

One day Antoine (you’ll meet him later) asked me to go for a bike ride with a prototype of Flow he had built. It had a big box of tech attached to it for capturing measures and storing the data real-time.

I put the ‘Flow’ on my bars and the box in a pannier with all the wires and lights and sensors hanging out all over the place.

I went for the ride but unfortunately there was a violent attack on police near the Palais Royal while I was out. I found myself headed into a massive police checkpoint with some extremely dodgy looking kit strapped all over my bike…

What’s the biggest pollution spike you’ve recorded with your Flow?

Pancakes, I was making pancakes for the kids. sky-high PM levels.

So much amazing talent playing out all over the office. There is an incredible sense of creativity backed up by the skills to make things happen. There is no end to the strange and cool projects happening at HQ!
