Foreword

Thank you for landing on my personal research site. In case you wonder who I am, here is a brief introduction to myself and my academic background.

I am a Canadian researcher looking for computational solutions to astronomical problems. I grew up in Québec, Canada. Hence, my mother tongue is French, and I am Québécois at heart. I hold a MSc degree by research in Computer Science from Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada, and a PhD degree by research in astronomy completed at the Centre from Astrophysics and Supercomputing, Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australa. My MSc was conducted under the supervision of A/Prof Danny Dubé and co-supervision of Prof Laurent Drissen (astronomy department). My PhD was conducted under the supervision of A/Prof Christopher J. Fluke, and co-supervision of A/Prof David G. Barnes (Monash University), and Dr Amr H. Hassan.

I currently work as part of the Astronomy Group at the Netherland Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON), an institute of the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), with funding from the Netherlands eScience Center under the project AA-ALERT: Access and Acceleration of the Apertif Legacy Exploration of the Radio Transient Sky, thanks to Dr Joeri van Leeuwen. I primarily work on the search pipeline of the ALERT survey, searching for Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) and the International Low-Frequency Array (LOFAR) located in the Netherlands. FRBs are millisecond-duration, highly energetic, dispersed radio pulses emitted from distant regions of spacetime, far beyond the vicinity of the Milky Way. FRBs have represented the source of highly discussed open questions among astronomy academics for a little over a decade.

For my Ph.D. thesis, I addressed fundamental problems facing modern astronomy relating to processing, visualisation, analysis, storage, and transfer of data. As both the volume and velocity at which data is generated within a survey increase, novel methods and analytical tools are required to help understand information hidden within data. I investigated and introduced novel visualisation methods for real-time collaborative visual analytics in immersive environments; and explored data compression to accelerate data transfer within geographically dispersed, time-critical observing programs.


A list of scientific articles and related publications I have either written or co-authored can be found under the work section. For each item listed, a link to the publication is included. The research I do generally involves astronomy and computing, but has so far also extended to biological imaging, ecology, telecommunication, information theory, analytics, and data visualisation. While the work presented in these articles is either theoretical or computational, it often involves putting it to the test on advanced computing infrastructures, such as supercomputers and advanced visualisation facilities.

Academia provides the opportunity to present our work at different conferences around the world. A list of my previous presentations is included on this site.

Finally, a core part of my work has involved software development, and sometimes software training. A list of projects I worked on in the past years, along with software releases, can also be found in the following section.


In the hope that this page can be useful to some of you.
