Thriving on challenges, fearless and positive, and having a strong passion for innovation. Enjoying efficient processes and neat design. Convinced that (good) leadership + diversity are necessary for succeeding as a team. Curious about everything that (may) drive the world forward. Working daily with the digital transformation of the building and construction industry (meaning all the usual suspects: AI, Big data, VR, digital twin, BIM, blockchain, 3D printing and even metaverse).
I have a master degree in Aeronautical Engineering from one of the most prestigious Engineering Schools in France, and I have a PhD in Structural Engineering from NTNU in Norway. From 2012, I have been working as a research scientist, a research manager, and now an innovation manager at SINTEF, one of the largest research institutes in Europe. Since 2018 I am also an Adj. Assoc. Professor at NTNU, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
