I am a first-year Computer Science Ph.D. Student at the GEODES lab within the department of
Computer Science and Operations Resarch (DIRO) at Université de Montréal.

My research lies within the field of systems engineering, with a keen interest in digital twins for controlled environment agriculture, and focuses on the modeling and co-simulation of cyber-biophysical systems.

Sustainability is at the core of my research activities. I am working with our industrial partner Ferme d'hiver to develop a digital twin of their vertical strawberry farm, to aid operators control the system to improve yields and reduce energy consumption. The goal of this project is to lower food insecurity in Canada by making local produce available year-round.

I received my master's degree in computer science at Université de Montréal, where I developed a co-simulation framework for the multi-paradigm modeling of the Ferme d'hiver system. During my degree, I was also a teaching assistant for multiple undergraduate classes.

I earned my bachelor's degree at Concordia University, where I worked in both industrial and research internships. My first internship was conducted under an NSERC grant in the Ptidej team, where I worked with Prof. Yann-Gaël Guéhéneuc to implement a javascript engine within Netsurf, a low-cost browser tailored for embedded systems. Following that experience, I worked as a full stack web developer for a few months. From my last year of undergraduate studies until the start of my graduate journey, I worked for over a year and a half as a treasury analyst at the National Bank of Canada, where I developed ETL pipelines and modeled fixed-income and variable-rate financial products such as mortgages, swaps, and various yield curves.
