Hello/Salut!

About Me

A driven and curious biochemist turned software engineer, interested in the applications of technology in answering biological questions

I love exploring and engaging in different new diverse projects. While I enjoy building machine learning models, I also love to hike, meet new people and reinvent the ways we enjoy and consume food.

Check out my projects here & my cv.
