Biography | Always in search of new challenges, Gabrielle holds a Bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering and a Master's degree in technological project management, both from École polytechnique de Montréal. She started her academic career studying Physiology at McGill University and pivoted to engineering as she discovered a strong preference for applied sciences and problem solving. After her Master's, Gabrielle became project manager at Nüvü Caméras, a Montreal-based high-technology start-up, focused on the design and manufacturing of the most sensitive camera in the market. Having answered the needs of observatories around the world, Gabrielle was overseeing the company's new mission of diversifying into medical and space-mission applications. After 3 years at the company, Gabrielle decided to go back to academia at École de technologie supérieure to reconnect with her passion for biomedical engineering and start a PhD under the supervision of Dr. Jeremie Voix on his “bionic ear project” - an ambitious collaboration on multimodal bio-sensing using a device that centers in and around the ear. Her main points of interest for this project are electroencephalography, brain wave analysis, machine learning algorithms and mobile application development.

Michel Demuynck

Academic Project | Modeling of earpieces subjected to earcanal deformations with jaw-joint movement

Academic Degree | Doctorat | 2018-09 - 2022-12

Meritas | Research Dissemination Award

Biography | Michel received a mechanical engineering degree from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Métiers (ENSAM), France, and a biomedical M.Sc., specialized in biomechanics, from the Université Paris-Descartes, France, in 2018. Sensitized since a very young age by the fields of engineering and medicine, he has been able to combine both by being passionate about human biomechanics. His experiences in both industrial and academic research projects, as a R&D assistant engineer intern in the dental implant field, then with his master thesis focused on the rib cage modifications modeling, have enabled him to improve his skills particularly in numerical modeling, mechanical design and reverse engineering and develop his creative spirit and perseverance. Motivated by R&D and competitiveness, Michel has always wanted to take part in the race for innovation. Thus, he joined Jérémie Voix's team at CRITIAS industrial research chair at ÉTS to get involved in the "bionic ear" project. Currently a Ph.D. candidate in engineering, Michel's thesis focuses on modeling the earcanal deformations with jaw movements. LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/michel-demuynck-02274114/

Meritas | Merit scholarship program for foreign students (PBEEE) (2022-2024, Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologies) - Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement (2019, École Nationale Superieure d'Arts et Métiers, France)

Biography | Solenn holds an engineering degree from École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers (ENSAM, France) and a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Columbia University (NY, USA). Deeply passionate about sciences and their ability to help others she has always been looking to work on projects bringing science and health together and was involved in different innovation challenges. After an internship at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) in Montréal with Prof. J. Voix and Dr. H. Nélisse, she decided to pursue a PhD on the development of a protective hearing aid for workers in noisy environment, a collaboratiove research project between ÉTS, U.Ottawa, U. Laval and IRSST, the Quebec occupatinal health and safety research institute. Her research focuses on combining hearing aid, hearing protection and continuous monitoring of an individual’s noise exposure into a single intra-aural device. The resulting prototype would aim at enhancing research on hearing impairment in noisy workplace environment and could lead to a commercialized device on the emerging high-growth market of over-the-counter hearing aids.
