You will be the actors of tomorrow!

What do you do?

I am gathering and studying clues, such as ultrasounds images of the underground or well data, to define the best spot to drill wells in order to find natural gas.

Why did you choose this field?

I wanted to understand how the earth and its landforms were created, or why we have earthquakes or the different kind of rocks. I decided to do an engineer school in Geology in Nancy, France (ENSG). Later in my studies, doing my second master at IFP School (Institut Français du Pétrole), I decided to study earth to provide energy to people looking for natural gas.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I wish the younger have known more role models, offering confidence and vision

Why do you love working in STEM?

I like analysing data, comparing them and their logic and testing my hypothesis. It is like a treasure hunt! It is very exciting.

Best advice for next generation?

STEM is a game and a powerful tool. It will help you to answer enigmas of the world of tomorrow and shape your own future: energy demand, global warming, architectures, cities organisations, technologies evolution... You will be the actors of tomorrow, Use this tool to feed your creativity!
