After graduating as an electronics engineer with a strong scientific background, I have been involved in various positions, ranging from Software Developer in Image Synthesis, Maintenance of Networks, DBMS.
Between 1992 and 1998, I have been a freelancer (Web Designer, Trainer on the use of MS Office and Translator for the Chamber of Commerce & Industry in Lorient, France).
I have then worked as Director of the Technical Documentation & Translation in a company specialized in Nuclear Instrumentation Devices/Systems, M.G.P Instruments (now Mirion Technologies) near Salon de Provence (35 miles North from Marseilles): see

I have then worked as a freelance technical and scientific translator from 2005 on.

In the medical field, the areas I have mostly investigated are:
- Genetics & Rare Diseases, namely PWS (Prader-Willi Syndrome)
- Neurosciences
- Physiopathology of pain, Pain Treatments (Drugs & Devices)
- Oncology

I have garnered some consistent knowledge in Biology, Genetics, BioPhotonics.
I have translated some scientific papers in Genetics related to the PWS and anomalies of the genomic imprint (locus 15q11-q13).

I do believe that the most knowledge-producing areas today and for the years to come are and will be the Biosciences and (Nano)materials/devices through breakthroughs in Biocomputing, Photonics, Scientific Imaging, Bio-inspired Modelling using intense calculus and powerful computers.

I am currently looking for technical/scientific writing/translating in the Life sciences area:
Biology, Genetics, Medicine, Healthcare, Biotechnologies, Biophotonics for :

- Clinical Research Organizations, Medical Research Foundations or Institutes
- Pharmaceutical labs (innovative drugs and therapies),
- Medical devices manufacturers,
- IT for Life Sciences (Analysis software for DNA and/or RNA sequencing, e.g Affymetrix, bioanalysis software for research in Genetics, proteomics, transcriptomics).
- Manufacturers of Probes/Products for research in Biosciences/ Bioengineering
- Related to Biophotonics: Designers of new investigation tools for Life Sciences/Medical research.
