**Physicist** & **mathematician**, I am also interested by **web development** and **computer science**.

Blogger, tutor, fashion victim, coffee aficionado.

Interested by the application of **Physics Education Research** (PER) to online learning.

Spends his spare time thinking hard about the interrelations between **models in physics**, **category theory**, the **relational model**, **functional relational programming**, the use of **DSL**s in physics, and how physics could be studied from different point-of-views: historical, "axiomatic" (from a minimal set of principles), mathematical (pick a math topic, and apply it to a wide range of physical systems), geometric (one can argue that everything in physics has a geometric nature).

*VPython* enthusiast. Obsessive-compulsive *LaTeX* typesetter. *Sage* and *Maxima* user. *GeoGebra*-curious.

Rediscovered the joy of programming through Lispy languages such as *Scheme* and *Qi/Shen*, and is fond of Logo-like languages such as *Elica* and *Rebol*. Now enjoys pure functional programming. Making his first baby steps in *Haskell*.

La moitié du temps, je parle et pense en français.
