Yann graduated from the university of Brest in Engineering Physics and remote sensing, Marine specialization. He started his carrier in 1998, joining a company acting in the field of marine Environnement. Yann served six years as an engineer, working on projects related to scientific software developments for several government clients like IFREMER (French Research Institute for Exploration of the Seas) and SHOM (Hydrographical and Oceanographical Marine Service). He joined in 2004 a company specialized in a broad range of expertise areas within the marine environment sector. Yann has used his experienced to design and implement operational systems for oceanic environmental analysis and forecasting, and for high resolution remote sensing applied to coastal zone management and deep ocean mapping. Since 2008 as the head of the data processing unit at Cerema (Centre for Expertise and Engineering on risks, urban and country planning, environment and mobility) and since 2013 as the head of the Research & Development division in the field of maritime Telecommunications, his experience includes working with the Maritime Affairs and managing projects related to technological maritime surveillance solutions including AIS (Automatic Identification System) terrestrial and space-based communications systems. In 2015, Yann co-founded eOdyn and started to develop a transformative solution to measure ocean surface currents thanks to a patented technology relying on ship trajectory analysis and machine learning.
