About Me

Hello! My name is Jean-Philippe, I am a French Software Engineer and Film Photographer currently based in Port-aux-Français, Kerguelen Islands, where I am doing a 13-month overwintering in contract with the French Polar Institute from November 2019 to Decembre 2020. I am passionate about many subjects including Embedded Systems, IT Security, Programming Languages, Analog Photography, Music and more.

I write some Open Source Software, you can check my GitHub account. If you like photography, you can also take a look at my photography website.


Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to get in touch. As my internet connection is very low in Kerguelen Islands, please reach me only by email at:

jpcugnet@kerguelen.ipev.fr (PGP)

For information purpose only, the outside-of-Kerguelen ways to reach me are the following:

Please note however that due to my low internet connection, I don’t read Matrix, IRC and Twitter at the moment, and I may read emails from my standard account from time to time, but with no guarantee.
