Jean-Marc Paul

Jean-Marc Paul is a mathematician. He was bitten by the computer science bug very early and specialized in the field. He designed the econometric tools used to develop and operate the econometric models of the FPB, such as Hermes, Modtrim or Maltese. These tools are mostly written in APL and C/C++ and run on Windows and Linux.

Jean-Marc is also a member of the FPB’s Demography team, where he is responsible for developing methods for mortality rate projections and for programming the demography model. He is also responsible for building tables for converting usufruct into capital and is a member of the Usufruct Commission of the Royal Federation of Belgian Notaries.

Jean-Marc has also gained broad experience in web development. He has been the coordinator of the FPB’s IT team since 1990.

He has been a member of the expert panel in charge of verifying the voting and counting systems used for local, regional, federal and European elections since 2004.
