Ph.D. defense

I successfully defended my doctoral thesis entitled "Design of a Wireless Underground Sensor Network for Precision Agriculture" with the highest dictinction (very honourable).

About Me

I am currently a post-doct in Computer Engineering with the FUN Team, Inria Lille-Nord Europe under the supervision of DR Nathalie Mitton.

I am also a temporary teacher in Computer Science at the University Institute of Technology and the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Ngaoundéré, Cameroon.

On July 2021, I defended my Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Anna Förster and Profs. Blaise Omer Yenke/Paul Dayang from Bremen and Ngaoundéré universities respectively. My Ph.D. works focused on a wireless underground sensor network for precision agriculture.

Apart from my technical skills, I describe myself as a cheerful person who is pleasant to work with. I have a passion for new technologies and I like the work well done.

What I like to do

Scientific research

Since the end of my Master 2, I have developed a taste for scientific research. This state of mind allows me to acquire new knowledge, to learn about what is new in terms of research.

Web Design

During my years of training I was able to learn some programming languages, however web design gives me much more satisfaction. I particularly like the symfony framework.

Teaching

I teach several courses at my university (University of Ngaoundéré) in Computer Science. I like to share the knowledge and experience/advice I have acquired with my students.

Learning new languages

I am fascinated by people who can speak several different languages fluently. I have set myself the goal of improving my English and learning German and Italian. Why not Chinese later?
