Scientific Timeline

1996
I was born as Sambo Boris ENG instead of Boris Sambo ENG (administrative mistake from my parents).
2002
I drew a beautiful Tyrannosaurus Rex.
2009
The origin of my discovery of programming was the wish to make RPG games (which I was never able to make)
2014
I got refused for the admission in DUT Informatique (2-years technical in Computer Science). Later got admitted with Kostia Chardonnet after several calls and an interview in IUT Montreuil. I then realized the existence of theoretical research in Computer Science.
2015
I had a growing interests for the "logic side" of the Curry-Howard correspondence. I was told that I shouldn't read the "Blind Spot" of Girard if I wanted to learn more about Logic but I read it anyway.
2017
I learnt about the Geometry of Interaction and the Transcendental Syntax project of Girard. After reading several articles and books about Logic and Computation, I was still not satisfied by it and felt a lack of understanding.
Now
I'm a bit lost but I'm doing my best.

Education

Degree School Year
PhD in Computer Science Université Paris 13 2019–Now
Master Parisien de Recherche en Informatique (MPRI) Université Paris 7 2018–2019
Master 1 Informatique Recherche (15.5/20, mention B) Université Paris 7 2017–2018
Licence 3 Informatique (Rang 2, Rang 1, mention TB) Université Paris 7 2016–2017
DUT Informatique (Rang 1) IUT de Montreuil 2014–2016
Baccalauréat Technologique STI2D (Mention B) Lycée Dorian 2011–2014

Note that I didn’t have a scientific/mathematical education but rather a technical one. I studied electronics and sustainable development (I still don’t understand how they’re related) for the “baccalauréat STID2”. The DUT Informatique is a 2-years technical degree in IT.
