Guilhem is an R&D Engineer at Cosmo Tech. He answered our questions from the Cosmo Tech headquarters in Lyon, France.
What’s your background and how did you end up at Cosmo Tech?
First of all, I am from the south of France! More precisely from a paradise land called La Provence. After two years of (mostly mathematical) education in the Higher School Preparatory Classes of Marseille, I ended up at Arts et Métiers ParisTech Engineering School. Three years later, I was full of theoretical and practical knowledge in energy, mechanics, and physics. Instead of jumping directly into the world of industry, I seized the opportunity to learn Applied Mathematics and Optimization for a PhD. I spent three long years working on my thesis in Montpellier and eventually a new passion had grown: computer science and modeling. After that, I found my way to Cosmo Tech in 2015.
What’s a typical day like for you?
From a technical point of view, my days are always different. I’ve learned a lot about software design since I came here. You know, every day you have to face a new difficulty, whether it is from a piece of language or data science technology. This is why the help of my teammates is extremely important! Everyone shares a part of their knowledge, so you can both learn and succeed in your project! Plus, we have a lot of different minds and personalities, which makes the days more colorful.
You just got finished working on a pretty big project. What can you tell us about it?
Unfortunately, I can’t speak too much about the projet. However, for the past several months, I was the core designer of a next generation decision software for the design of IoT infrastructures. Such projects are really exciting, since they are at the edge of the world’s technological evolutions! What I particularly enjoy is that this brings out and entertains all my creativity, which is something I look for in projects.
