Hi! My name is Sébastien Drouyer, I am a computer research scientist and published author. I am passionate about artificial intelligence, computer vision, machine learning, web technologies, software development, computer science and science in a general manner.
I love to compete in computer science contests, especially those that last more than a few days. I have won several prizes in competitions organized by well known companies such as NASA (TopCoder), Intel, Github and Infotel.
Since october 2014, I am working on a PhD in the field of computer vision. I am funded by IFP Energies nouvelles and work at the Mines Paristech doctoral school. The topic of my PhD thesis is "3D topography by image segmentation approach : application to scanning electron microscopy ". So far, I have a fantastic experience.
I have been part of the core team of Novius OS, an open source content management system, and I contributed to the FuelPHP framework (upon which Novius OS is based) as well as several other open source projects (hotfix, jquery.earth-3d, jugglingdb...). I trained several teams to FuelPHP and am a conference speaker on the subject. My experience led me to write and publish a book about this wonderful framework: FuelPHP Application Development Blueprints.
