I hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Liège (Belgium).
Between 2006 and 2011, I implemented high-performance image analysis software for private companies in the fields of machine vision, closed-circuit television, and broadcasting. Since 2011, I have been working as a medical imaging engineer at the University Hospital of Liège, where I develop the free and open-source software Orthanc. My research interests include medical imaging, computer vision, machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT), and software engineering. My work was notably acknowledged by the IBM Belgium Award in 2002, by the Free Software Foundation's 2014 Award for Advancement of Free Software, by the Agoria e-Health Award in 2015, and by the Walloon Medal for Merit in 2015.
Since 1996, I have been using GNU/Linux and Free Software as much as possible, including during my daily job, especially through Debian-based distributions. Since 2012, I have been actively contributing to Debian by creating all the Orthanc-related packages (orthanc, orthanc-dicomweb, orthanc-imagej, orthanc-postgresql, orthanc-webviewer, orthanc-wsi). For this packaging task, I have greatly benefited from the help of the DebianMed community, notably through Andreas Tille and Mathieu Malaterre.
My goal as a Debian contributor is to improve the support of medical imaging, IoT and big-data analysis inside Debian-derived GNU/Linux distributions.
