I am an experienced Machine Learning Engineer. I specialized in Natural Language Processing and Information Retrieval. I am currently working as a Machine Learning Engineer with LLoyds Banking Group in London.

I hold a Master of Science in Big Data and Text Analytics at the University of Essex. I did my dissertation in Open Domain Question Answering for the French Language. I was awarded the Chevening Scholarship by the UK Government’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

I also enjoy helping young black engineers thrive in their careers, which is why my friends called me: le grand frère de ses petits frères. I am part of the Masakhane, where I am working on NLP for African/Congolese Language. I am a co-organizer of the Francophone in AI workshop at the Deep Learning Indaba.

I was born in Bukavu and grew up in Goma, DRCongo. I am the firstborn of a family of nine. I define myself as a meloman and enjoy listening to Congolese beats when writing code. I am a huge Manchester City fan, I play FPL and cycle sometimes.
