A scientist with a very good knowledge of biological systems (more than 20 years of experience), I can provide hints about what is realistic in terms of production of biological molecules in a closed context (ex : fermenters) or environmental production (precision agriculture). I have obtained through multi-disciplinary bibliographic analyses a good knowledge of biological systems optimisation for enhanced yields and quality. I see too many projects with little chances of success because scientific inputs are too light and I now want to work on good projects rather than others' projects. I have spent too much time wasting taxpayers' money on scientific projects designed by researchers and professors from academia with little chances of success and very hypothetical results. I am ready to engage with a partner who can bring business development for a precision agriculture project.

    Title: Data driven solutions can be high ROI if good data is used else results remain confusing
    Location: Bordeaux, France
    Experience abroad: No
    Time period: from: 09.2015 I currently work here
    Description: I am currently looking for my next opportunity to affect positive change within an organization that values a strong entrepreneurial spirit, creative problem solving, and a desire to succeed. My strengths: knowledge of plant physiology, agronomy, microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, biocomputing, .... ease with computing and robotics in general. I am -first- biologist and -second- biocomputing specialist. This knowledge gives me the opportunity to embrace/design a project with a stronger chance of success. The analysis of state of the art (scientific / commercial) I provide gives birth to real disruptive innovations rather than usual incremental innovations provided by most research projects.
The aim of the project is to bring real efficient solutions for farmers. My knowledge of crop growth and productivity obtained through research in this field and extensive multi-disciplinary bibliography analyses gives me the possibility to select the right data, analyse and integrate several well-collected data and install efficient solutions in the fields. Finding the good agronomical solution to apply in specific circumstances or applying agronomical innovations wisely is what the farmers need. Presently the providers of precision agriculture solutions use a single technology without agronomy point of views and do not succeed in getting more clients because their solutions are not efficient. Others just try to adapt one technology to fulfill a client's "need/wish" (what the client thinks he needs based on the hypes in PA).
I want to bring results based on the good technologies correctly integrated.
The precision agriculture market is wide open because no-one provides solutions with high ROIs. This is what I want to provide to farmers.
Many competitors on the market but none has yet found a way to prosper because they focus on making revenues fast rather than providing high ROIs to their clients (farmers).
