When a company and an EPFL student grow together.

— Axel Séguin obtained his Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics at the Politecnico di Torino and arrived at EPFL in 2016 with a view to pursuing a Master's degree in the same field. A few months later, through exposure to other courses, he decided to turn to computational sciences. Without realising it, this was the next step in his destiny, between research and applied theory at Rollomatic.
