 I'm a Senior Technical Staff Member and Master Inventor at The Weather Company, an IBM Business. I received a M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering from Ecole Centrale de Paris in France, and a Culinary Arts diploma from the Institute of Culinary Education in New York.

Before joining The Weather Company, I worked at the IBM Watson Research Center for fifteen years, focusing on Business Process Management, IT Services Management, and Software as a Service, then in the Watson Group. I'm currently the lead engineer for IBM Chef Watson (www.ibmchefwatson.com), an application that uses machine learning and natural language processing to demonstrate computational creativity and suggest original recipe ideas. I also write a blog about Eastern European cuisine, Food Perestroika (www.foodperestroika.com).
