Olivier Valentin, Ph.D.
Olivier Valentin received a Bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Université Claude Bernard Lyon I (France) in 2007, a Master’s degree in biomedical engineering from École Polytech Lyon (France) in 2010, a Ph.D. Doctorate in engineering from École de technologie supérieure (Canada) in 2016 and two Specialized Post-Graduate Diploma (D.E.S.S.) from Université de Sherbrooke (Canada) in 2020 and 2021.
In 2016, Olivier joined the Canada-based NSERC-EERS Industrial Research Chair in In-Ear Technologies (CRITIAS) as a postdoctoral researcher to develop a wireless EEG-based BCI system able to both tolerate natural movement and record brain signals. Following this first postdoctoral research collaboration, Olivier joined the Groupe d’Acoustique de l’Université de Sherbrooke (GAUS) where he brought his large expertise in hearing, data analysis, psycho-acoustics, sound quality models, and research ethics, across two main research projects funded by the Institut de Recherche Robert-Sauvé en Santé et en Sécurité du Travail (IRSST) and BRP Inc. The first project was a large, multi-institutional and international research project on the comfort of hearing protectors in the workplace, and the second one was a collaborative project related to the sound quality of recreational vehicles.
Olivier is currently working as a Research Associate in Neuroengineering at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre. His research interests include biomedical engineering, acoustics, auditory sciences, electrophysiology, brain computer interfaces and AI.
