Remi Barillec

Software Developer

I am part of IGI's software development team, based in Birmingham. I am currently involved in the implementation of the plotting framework in p:IGI+.

After completing an MSc in Computer Science and Mathematics at the ENSIIE (Evry, France) in 2012, I joined Aston University for an MSc in Pattern Recognition followed by a PhD in Bayesian Data Assimilation under the supervision of Dan Cornford. I then worked for 4 years as a research assistant on the EPSRC-funded MUCM (Managing Uncertainty in Complex Models) project before joining IGI as a software developer in October 2012.

I have a strong interest in numerical methods, probabilistic modelling and Bayesian inference as well as in writing efficient, robust software in various programming languages and for various platforms. I see p:IGI+ as a great opportunity to combine these interests towards writing edge-cutting data interpretation software.

I sometimes sneak away from the office to teach Computer Graphics at Aston University. When I'm not squashing bugs or marking coursework, I can be found on the football pitch, roaming the wastelands of Pandora or pretending I can play drums in a band.
