I'm Damien, currently working on various personal research and development projects, mostly in human-computer interaction for mobile and wearable technologies, augmented and virtual reality.
Previously, I completed a Ph.D. in cognitive computing and computer science (double degree program) under the supervision of Charles Gouin-Vallerand at TELUQ University (Montréal, Canada) and Sébastien George at Le Mans University (Laval, France). I received a scholarship from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada and from the company Ohrizon. Then, as a postdoctoral researcher, I joined the User Experience Research Group led by Professor Jonna Häkkilä from the University of Lapland (Faculty of Art and Design) in Finland.

Anecdotally and paradoxically, despite having chosen the .run extension for obvious reason, it does not reflect my personality, I am advocating for a slow living style.
