As a software engineer, my work consists in designing, developing, deploying and maintaining biological data analysis tools. As an expert of the R language and software, I am in charge of many R packages which are available on CRAN, Bioconductor, GitHub and GitLab and of web applications developed with the shiny package. I am regularly associated with training and teaching modules, and I share, at these occasions, my knowledge and experience regarding the reproducibility of research and good development practices.
