Cristian Perez Brokate

This is the best place if you want to learn more about Cristian Perez Brokate. I'm a Data Scientist with a PhD in physical chemistry. I made this page as a frontend for my portfolio.


I'm inside a structure that promotes digital transformation of the French Ministry. My team helps other ministries to use data in a most effective way. My main tasks are the following:

Dec 2019 - Present 4.0 months

Entrepreneur d'Intérêt Général is equivalent to the Presidential Innovation Fellows in the US. This program hires Entrepreneurs for a 10 months mission, in order to bring digital transformation in the French Administration and make use of public Data.

Jan 2019 - Nov 2019 10 months

Kernix is an agency that builds personalized digital and data products. I worked with the data team to build entire data products using machine learning tools and visualizations. I had the opportunity to work with clients from diverse fields and develop personalized data products for each one, my main realisations were:

Jan 2017 - Jan 2019 2 years

The CEA is a structure that regulates Atomic Energy in France. During my PhD I used numerical simulations to predict the corrosion behaviour of metal structures for nuclear applications. The scientific results of my PhD can be found at my PhD dissertation, my main tasks were:

Nov 2013 - Oct 2016 3 years

Part time

City AI is a global community that brings practitioners and stakeholders of applied artificial intelligence together. I represent the Paris community regarding the international community of City AI. My main tasks in are:

2018 - Present 1.9 years

The objective of this movement is to organize simultaneous Startup Weekends around the world focused on artificial intelligence. I worked as a technical expert in the field, my main tasks were:

2017 - 2018 1 year

Teaching of practical courses on thermodynamics (heat exchangers and centrifugal pumps)

2014 - 2016 2 years
