Yannick  Roy
PhD Student

Passionate about neurotechnologies, I’m involved locally and internationally in various initiatives in the field. With a technical background (computer science and electrical engineering), I want to leverage technologies to impact education, entertainment, cognitive training, healthcare and human enhancement.

I started my career with a technical degree in computer science from Cégep Lionel-Groulx (2007) followed with an electrical engineering degree from ETS (2012). During that period I’ve worked as a software developer and automation engineers for companies like CAE, Videotron, SynergX, and Orus3D. In 2015 I joined Faubert Lab for a PhD, working on a Closed-Loop System for Cognitive Training.
