Vaucher genealogy


After finishing my bachelor's degree in 2000, I went on to work at different companies doing system design and project management. Before coming back to university to pursue a Master's degree, I worked at an electronic commerce research lab at CIRANO, the Center for Interuniversity Research and Analysis on Organisations. For two years, I worked as a research professional, building industrial prototypes, particularly a multi-agent systems capable of building travel packages and an information retrieval system for call for tenders. Additionally, I co-founded a firm specialising in reverse auctions, MinMax. I just succesfully defended my PhD in the GEODES software engineering laboratory at the University of Montreal specialising in software quality and empirical studies. I'm currently employed at Benchmark consulting, a firm specialized in code analysis and legacy system migration.
