Prior to co-founding Algolia, I was in charge of all R&D activities at Exalead, a major Search and SaaS player acquired by Dassault Systems for 135M€. My mission was to ensure Exalead products set the standard for innovation and excellence in the Search Based Applications market. My career also includes a Chief Technology Officer position at Arisem, a Thales company recognized for the quality and performance of its Text Mining products.

I have strong background in product management and creation of rockstar developers teams, and I am passionate about lean startups. I hold an M.S. from ESIEA and a Ph.D in Computer Science from Nantes University.
