I joined INFINITI Motors Limited as a member of the Global Connected Car team in the summer of 2016. These days where everything from mobile devices to streetlights are part of a global network in the Internet of Things, cars provide a unique way for us to interact with the world around us.

Between February and June, I did a part-time internship at Privé.
