Scientific Software Projects

I am a Professor in Physics, and a Canada Research Chair in Biophotonics, member of the Centre d'Optique Photonique et Laser. I am based at the Centre de Recherche Universite Laval Robert Giffard where I focus on live animal imaging for neuroscience pathologies such as multiple sclerosis, chronic pain and nerve injuries.

Before that, I worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at the Wellman Centre for Photomedicine (Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School) in Boston with Dr Charles Lin. I also trained as a post-docotoral fellow at the Ontario Cancer Institute in Toronto with I.A. Vitkin and Dr. B. C. Wilson. I originally graduated in laser and condensed matter physics from the University of Toronto. Over the years, I have written software to make my life easier in my research. This web site is here for mostly historical reasons, since a few publications refer to it, and other pages also link to it. It may eventually get folded back into
