Dear Web Visitor,
my name is Quentin Francois (Resume), 25 years old, geek, sportsman, Ph.D. student and Product Manager in a company called Robeauté and in ISIR laboratory at Sorbonne University. I share my profesional time between these institutions. This is a particular french thesis type (Cifre thesis) which allows me to work for a company with the support of an academic laboratory. Next to these jobs, I followed a core MBA @ INSEAD in 2019 to discover and understand the basics of the business. I'm a mechatronics engineer, graduated from INSA Strasbourg. During these five years of studies I have developed some skills in mechanics, electronics and programming which allow me to work in multi-field domains like robotics, transport systems, health technologies, ... I spent one study semester abroad, in Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in the microtechnologies section. This experience was amazing, I discovered a lot of domains and especially bioengineering, microsystems, bioelectronics and microfabrication. The contact with research laboratories and entrepreneurs have confirmed my desire to push sciences forward and to transform the results into products that can change our societies. That's why I combine the research of my thesis with a product manager role.
Out of the professionnal world, I like sports and especially team sports. I have played football since I was 10. I particularly enjoy football because it combines collective aspect and technicality. I was very active in my two football clubs : player, captain, trainer of young players, webmaster and member of communication work group. I'm also fond of travel and new cultures discovery (the background is a photo of a roadtrip in West Canada). Actually, I love to discover Paris by cycling. I've a passion for computing, new technologies and entrepreneurship. Moreover, I like to realize some computing personnal projects as websites, server, programs, ... Finally I love to discover exhibitions, museums, opera, concert or conferences and to spend some time to read about new trends in computing, sciences, management but also fantastic books just for fun.
