their experience


Head of the High Reliability Energy Competence Center

"IRT for me is a meeting place between different human and professional experiences. It is “the place to be” for anyone who is curious and technology-addicted like me. I am really attached to the multi-cultural aspects, as illustrated by my background (Italy, Germany, and USA) and my multi-professional career (researcher, engineer, and entrepreneur).

Complexity, often seen as a shortcoming, is a challenge for me. Things that are easy have never interested me. What attracted me to IRT Saint Exupéry was also the difficulty of the challenges."


Expert in deep learning

"The abundance of all these different kinds of profiles is great. I like the simultaneous closeness between researchers and industrialists....  Not to mention being in touch with the new generation of engineers that learned to read by coding. That also imposes a very dynamic rhythm, which I like a great deal."
