Flash Informatique EPFL

Here below is a selection of articles I wuthored or co-authored. Please visit my author page at FI for more.

Other

Co-editor in chief for the Flash Informatique Spécial HPC 2009, 2010 and the EPFL - Zetta magazine about Computational Science and Engineering, in 2012.

Outreach activities

I did several presentations about Open Source Software and High Performance Computing, alone or in collaboration with others. Here are some links:

More presentations will go up soon!

Interests

Languages

My current plans are

  • improve my Mandarin Chinese (普通话 – simplified characters) and achieve HSK2 and HSK3 in 2019
  • reach A1 level in Russian in 2019

Education

I am researching on how to teach programming to young kids:

  • Age 4-6: teaching programming with no screens
  • Age 6 - 7: block programming and UCB Logo.
