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 also supervise students in computer science (neuroinformatics) 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). The SIMEXP lab also applies machine learning techniques to identify robust markers of brain disorders in multisite data, most notably as part of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA). 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.
