Guillaume Dumas, Ph.D.

Guillaume Dumas is an Associate Professor of Computational Psychiatry in the Faculty of Medicine at the Université de Montréal, and the Principle Investigator of the Precision Psychiatry and Social Physiology laboratory at the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center. He holds the IVADO professorship for “AI in Mental Health”, the FRQS J1 in “AI and Digital Health”, and is a CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar in the “Brain, Mind, and Consciousness” program.

He held a previous appointment as a permanent researcher in Neuroscience and Computational Biology at the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France). Before that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Complex Systems and Brain Sciences (FAU, USA). He holds an engineering degree in advanced engineering and computer science (Ecole Centrale Paris), two MSc degrees (theoretical physics, Paris-Saclay University; cognitive science, ENS/EHESS/Paris 5), and a PhD in cognitive neuroscience (Sorbonne University).

His research aims at cross-fertilizing AI/ML, cognitive neuroscience, and digital medicine through an interdisciplinary program with two main axes:

– AI/ML for Mental Health, creating new algorithms to investigate the development of human cognitive architecture and to deliver personalized medicine in neuropsychiatry using data from genome to smartphones.

– Social Neuroscience for AI/ML, translating basic brain research and dynamical systems formalism into neurocomputational and machine learning hybrid models (NeuroML) and machines with social learning ability (Social NeuroAI & HMI).
