Thierry joined the DRIAD team as a Junior Innovation Consultant. He introduces himself in a short interview.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am a 42-year-old Frenchman who lives in Leeds. I was an English teacher for 17 years but quit my job and left my country to live with my wife, who is English. My passion is history, in particular the Medieval period, and Economy.
What are your interests in innovation and technology?
Given my career, anything to do with e-learning, its possibilities and its limits interests me.
I am also interested in the impact of technology on our daily lives and on privacy.
What's your speciality?
I don't come from a scientific or technological background – I studied English Literature and Civilisation at Uni; so I specialise in analysis and writing.
Anything you want to add?
This is a new chapter of my life and I am looking forward to gaining new experience and abilities. I really enjoy living here, in Yorkshire - it feels like I'm in Winterfell!
