12 June 2023 / 15:00 - 17:00 CEST
EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Agriculture
Online Event

In cooperation with

Agriphotonics promise the realisation of innovative eco-friendly agricultural practises that will meet the UN sustainability goals for feeding the globe. Laser based weeders are now planned to be installed in heavy machinery, drones and hand used devises. That technology combined with machine vision and hyperspectral cameras can help reducing the use of toxic pesticides in the open fields and green houses. At this meeting all main player in the photonic value chain will gather to discuss the current challenges and seek for solutions.

Technical-Commercial Engineer at PISEO Since 2022.
Coming from technical study, engineer specialized in photonics and optronic systems at University Paris-Saclay, I turned to a technical sales career to allow me to take part in many technical and varied subjects while having contact with many actors. of innovation.
I like technical challenges, meeting the specific needs of my clients to help them progress in their projects.
After a first experience in the field at Trioptics France as a specialist in optical metrology products for vision systems, nanometric displacement stages and spectral characterization devices, I turned to a service company.
Now at Piséo, a photonics innovation platform, I am in charge of the company's business development.
Whether for the laboratory or consulting / engineering part, I take part in many projects with actors from automotive area, defense, medical, general lighting and any actor using photonics.
