hello, world

I'm Damien, currently a postdoctoral researcher at the User Experience Research Group led by Professor Jonna Häkkilä from University of Lapland (Faculty of Art and Design) in Finland.

Previously, I completed a Ph.D. in cognitive computing and computer science (douple degree program) under the supervision of Charles Gouin-Vallerand from TELUQ University (Montreal, Canada) and Sébastien George from 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.

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.
