I am Software Developer at Qenvi Robotics. I worked for Amadeus as C++ Software Developer, for INRIA as Research and Development Engineer. Before, I worked at the Cergy-Pontoise University as a research and teaching assistant during two years. I did a co-supervised PhD in Cergy-Pontoise University and Donetsk National Technical University in 2014. My previous research was focused on human-robot physical interaction and the biologically inspired robot control.


Experience

Robotics Engineer

Qenvi Robotics

December 2019 - Present

C++ Software Developer

Amadeus

As Software Engineer I was developing Open BackEnds application for Hotel Reservation System in Agile Scrum team. Modification of existing code C++, working with data formats JSON and XML for BackEnd, regression testing.

December 2018 - December 2019

Research and Development Engineer

INRIA

As Engineer in the HEPHAISTOS project, I contribute to the creation of new robot for rehabilitation purposes. I contribute to the development of C written modules for robot control software and C# module for virtual reality terrain generation.

July 2016 - December 2018

Temporary assistant for teaching and research

Cergy-Pontoise University

I participated in ETIS laboratory investigations into the neural network control architectures to implement, for example, a physical interaction between a robot link covered with artificial skin and a human.

September 2014 - June 2016

Education

University of Cergy-Pontoise

PhD
Improvement of control algorithms of electrical robot arms with the bio-inspired approach.

Brief Synopsis of Research: I built a prototype of the wearable sensor to capture motion and force parameters, and I develop the data acquisition module and its software to analyze the dynamics of the handshake between humans, and I highlighted the emergent synchrony. I developed the controller based on the models of the rhythmic neuron, with the learning of the frequency of motion during the physical interaction with the robot arm.
