  • I quite enjoy electronics from time to time. The documentation (non serious!) for a small project I realised during my time at NeuroSpin — reverse engineer a food distribution system to interface it with a computer through USB.
  • A course from CogMaster was validated through a mini thesis. It’s about Mathematical Intuitions and Monsters (in French).
