After completing the French Scientific Baccalaureate with a Mathematics specialty (Mention Bien), Kevin Boutarel pursued an undergraduate degree in Mathematics at George Mason University. Kevin discovered he could apply the problem-solving skills of Mathematics to Computer Science. As a freshman, he became a Mathematics tutor and continued until graduation. Kevin took a Graduate Complex Analysis course his junior year and became a CS undergraduate teaching assistant the Spring of his senior year – graduating summa cum laude in 2015 with a 3.98/4 GPA. During a 2015 summer internship at FireEye, Kevin built a tool to automate their testing framework, still in use today. At Princeton, Kevin took core computer science courses while acting as a TA for the introductory CS course. During the Fall semester, Kevin and his team won first place in the Cisco SDN Hackathon. This led him to become a research assistant on IoT research in the Spring. Hoping to make SDN research his employment goal, Kevin is currently doing an internship on this subject at Stratus Solutions.
