Profile

Originally from Grenoble (France), Arthur completed his BSc and MSc in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). He worked as a Research assistant at the EPFL on novel usages of a snow cover model. At the University of Utrecht he developed practical methods to analyse plant materials. He acquired a growing interest for Big Data and online platforms to engage local communities towards the protection of the biodiversity while working 6 months as a Technology Developer in an ETH Zurich spin-off.
