Who am I?

Vast question! But leaving apart the introspection questions, I hold an Engineering degree from Ecole Centrale Paris ; I joined W3C first as its Webmaster through a V.I.E. exchange program at M.I.T., then was recruited as part of the INRIA-, then ERCIM-based European Team of W3C.

My work in W3C

Working from France, I’m currently involved in the following projects:

Before my current activities, I served as Staff Contact in the Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group, and as co-Chair of the Mobile Web Test Suites Working Group, the Geolocation Working Group, the Devices and Sensors Working Group. I also served as Staff Contact of the Web & Mobile Interest Group

I have also developed a number of the Web applications used by W3C to support its on-line collaborative work as part of the W3C Systems Team, and continue to develop tools for my W3C groups on a more ad-hoc basis (mostly on GitHub).

Even earlier, I was Activity Lead of the Quality Assurance Activity and Staff Contact of the Quality Assurance Working Group; I was also involved in the early work on GRDDL and various Semantic Web projects.

I’m also interested in Web Accessibility — as part of a larger focus of mine on usability.

More details about my activities are discoverable through my GitHub activities or via Twitter and Mastodon.


I’m available for speaking engagements, both in French and in English; contact me at dom@w3.org, preferably well in-advance of the event, especially for events outside of Europe.
