Associate Academic Member
Assistant Professor, École Polytechnique de Montréal

I’m an assistant professor in Electrical Engineering at Polytechnique Montréal and Neurosciences at Université de Montréal. That’s the secret, the brain loves communicating in electric signals.

Our Laboratory is especially focused on intelligent neural prosthetics. We develop medical devices for precision neurostimulation medicine of the nervous systems.

Some of our current projects:

  • New control modalities for invasive Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI).
  • Neurostimulation of the brain and the spinal cord to fight paralysis.
  • Scaling neuroprosthetic approaches by machine intelligence: towards advanced neural devices that can operate on multiple neural pathways simultaneously.

Our Lab is very interdisciplinary: we have both a computational team (RL, GPBO, black-box optimization) and a translational experimental team (from rodent to human).
