Academic Degree | Doctorat | 2016-09 - 2021-12

Meritas | - Scholarship from the Pierre Arbour foundation, 2018 et 2019 - Hydro-Quebec grant for renewable energy and sustainanble development 2018 - Erasmus Mundus Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience fellowship at the Neuropsychology Lab of Oldenburg University in Germany and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Oxford University, 2016-2017 - Travel fund scholarship from ETS, 2017 - Jury's recommendation for Master's project at École polytechnique de Montréal, 2015 - Best final year integrating project in biomedical engineering at École Polytechnique de Montréal, 2012-2013 - Certificate for Outstanding Academic Achievement from McGill University - French Baccalaureate in Science awarded with the highest distinction

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 - 2021-12

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/

Arthur Colombier

Academic Project | Modelization of instrumented earmuffs for fit-test and dosimetry applications: modeling and prototyping

Academic Degree | Doctorat | 2020-01 - 2023-04

Biography | From the beginning of his higher education, Arthur joined an engineering school, INSA Lyon (National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon) with the idea of entering the Mechanical Engineering department. Indeed, the latter offers its final year students the possibility of doing a double degree with the Master Acoustics of Lyon. Arthur's long-standing interest in the world of acoustics was then completely confirmed. He then did an internship at the INRS (National Institute for Research and Safety) in Nancy in a laboratory of acoustics at work, working on the subject of predicting the masked thresholds of hearing-impaired listeners. This internship allowed him to validate his mechanical engineering (speciality modelling and experimentation) and acoustics master degrees. He has thus acquired a taste for the world of research, and in particular for research on the auditory protection of workers. Continuing his career with a PhD seems to him to be a logical continuation of his training. Arthur thus came into contact with Jérémie Voix, professor at the École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS) in Montreal, who quickly became his thesis director. The subject of his doctoral thesis was the modelization of instrumentated earmuffs for dosimetry and fit-testing applications. It will focus mainly on prototyping and modeling aspects.
