Who I am...

It depends upon your needs and requirements. I am the modern day “Swiss Knife’.


I’m not just another hot shot computer geek. I have evolved in a specialized sector at an international level, performed my own research and developed commercial products. As an independent I maintain “social/professional” networks and integrate the human, environmental and economic development aspects into all my projects


What I do...

I do what is necessary to accomplish the tasks. I can refine needs, find or develop slick tools and overcome obstinate obstacles….My unique career and education combine with my ideas and Internet provides me with one of the largest intellectual play grounds known to man. So, is a freelance consultant, of service to you?

Specializing in advanced information management technologies and environmental sciences, I do what require analytical skills, decision making, anticipation, firm proposals, but flexibility and ruse in negotiations?I’m a self-employed management/information systems consultant.  I work with decision support systems  applied to environmental, ecology and business based applications. I also questions about what and how we observer, measure and model business processes and natural phenomena and then how to calibrate our models and extrapolate results and adapt to other observations. poulpe


Does your requirements include knowledge of the world of research and expertise in various fields such as the environment, biology, statistics, computer science … and “business” in an international context? Maybe we should talk…
