Affiliate Member
Assistant Professor, Université de Montréal

I am an associate professor at the department of Psychology of University of Montreal and the principal investigator of the laboratory for brain simulation and exploration (SIMEXP) at the Montreal Geriatrics Institute (CRIUGM). I recently joined Mila (Quebec AI research institute) as affiliated member, and I supervise students in computer science (cognitive computational neuroscience) at DIRO, University of Montreal. My main research interest is to train artificial neural networks in order to jointly mimic individual human brain activity and behaviour. To achieve that goal, I lead an intensive effort of individual data collection in neuroimaging (fMRI, MEG), the Courtois project on neuronal modelling (CNeuroMod). I am a Senior FRQS chercheur boursier, a member of the Quebec alliance for Unifying Neuroscience and AI (UNIQUE), and the scientific director of the Functional Neuroimaging Unit (UNF) at CRIUGM.
