Professional experiences

from January 2020 until today
Flight Dynamic Officer for the Kinéis constellation
from November 2016 until December 2019
Flight Dynamic Engineer for Earth observation satellites. Employed by CS-SI, I am detached at CNES.
from November 2012 to November 2016
Flight Dynamic Engineer at OCC in CNES.
Employed by CS, I am detached to CNES facility with the mission to maintain the software suite responsible of Orbit Determination at OCC.
I also take part in operations, such as daily work (orbit determinations, station network plannifiction), critical operations (launches, decommission) as well as on-call shifts for collisions avoidance in relation with JSpOC.
There, beside my field of expertise, I work with people from a lot of different areas (RF, on-board software specialists, operators) and handle a lot of domains (real-time communications, data visualization, website development, etc.).
