Ocean Data Scientist


Physical Oceanography, Environnemental Science and Data Analysis


My journey has been fueled by a profound love for the ocean and a dedication to social justice. From the expansive Weddell Sea to the picturesque shores of Nicaragua, I’ve explored various landscapes in pursuit of one question: How can we foster a sustainable world? My latest experience has taught me that the path to environmental (and social) balance will be long, and that the only way to achieve it is by acting together, on a territorial scale. With this realization, I’ve decided to return to work in France. The chance to join Amphitrite, a cutting-edge innovator in applied physical oceanography, thrills me, and I’m excited to bring my skills to this dynamic team and contribute to their groundbreaking work.
