Welcome to Emilien

Emilien Cuenot

Hey there! I’m Emilien Cuenot, the new intern at Damona. I’m thrilled to join this great team for a six-month internship, and I’m here to share a bit about myself.

I’m a nuclear engineering student from IMT Atlantique, currently on a gap year. I’ve always been captivated by the nuclear field, and I can’t wait to apply what I’ve learned with the Damona crew.

So, you might wonder what brought me here. My engineering university is the same as my tutor, Axel Canbakan, and he found me through LinkedIn, where I posted my resume. After several meetings, we reached an agreement, and I joined the team!

My journey has been quite a ride so far. It began with a challenging preparatory course in Strasbourg and led me to IMT Atlantique in Nantes. All of that was followed by a 4-month internship in Helsinki, Finland. The experiences I’ve gathered along the way have shaped me, and I’m excited to see how they’ll come into play during my time at Damona.

To be honest, it’s quite a change to move from Helsinki to Barcelona. I currently love living in such a vibrant city, and I find myself using bits of Spanish phrases.

While nuclear engineering is my main focus, I’m not a typical science enthusiast. When I’m not immersed in equations or code, you’ll often find me in a Muay Thai class. The discipline and determination I’ve gained from the ring are skills that I’m eager to bring to the Damona team.

Away from the office and the ring, my heart beats to the rhythm of rock and old French music. And, I’m also a big fan of hiking ! It’s a bit of a mix, but that’s what makes life interesting, right?

In a nutshell, I’m here to learn, to contribute, and to be a part of this incredible team. Cheers to new beginnings!

Hasta la próxima.
