Originally from Montreal, I studied aerospace engineering with a specialization in aircraft structure at Polytechnique Montréal. During my undergrad I was introduced to composites material through the university solar car team. Along this new interest, I took part in 2 summer research internships, where I dealt with a composite injection experimental setup. After undergrad, I pursued a Master’s within the same group but shifted my interest towards numerical simulation of pre-gelation defects. Through the participation to conferences, I also came to develop a new interest for structural modelling of composites. Now at UBC, as a Ph.D. student, my work on the formation of wrinkling in prepreg combines my knowledge of pre-gelation defects with my interest for structural modelling and finite elements.
Beside spending quality time with my computer, I am also dedicated to track and field, running the 400m Hurdles event.
