Marc's contribution to our team has been outstanding. Marc is a highly motivated, very talented research scientist who not only has a high degree of mastery of state-of-the-art AI techniques but also a strong desire to use them to solve concrete problems. When embarked on a task, he shows remarkable intuitions, autonomy and resilience in the face of difficulties. Thanks to this mix of qualities, he has achieved impressive results during his time at Spotify. He is all about answering the questions he is presented with, rather than contemplating the theoretical beauty of convoluted approaches. In the field of research, this is a rare quality which sets him apart from most otherwise talented people, and makes him the ideal person for solving efficiently even the most difficult technical problems.
