I am a designer and interdisciplinary researcher. I study human perception of reality, especially in relation to timescapes, spatial modulations, olfactory memory and other mnemic territories.
I hold a degree in Woodworking, a B.A. in Environmental Design (Université du Québec à Montréal) with a minor in Architecture (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow UK), and a M.Sc.A. in Planning / Urban Design (Université de Montréal). My thesis (written in French, 2013) is about the power of smells to trigger various spatio-temporalities in the environment: The Olfactory Memory Theater. I am currently pursuing this research within a doctorate in cognitive science in order to work out a theoretical approach for the community of architectural and urban designers interested in working with the olfactory dimension. The Fonds de recherche du Québec - Société et culture (FRQSC) awarded me a three and a half years doctoral research scholarship to carry out this study.
