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 my research within a Philosophy - Cognitive Science doctorate at UQAM-ISC 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.
I am a researcher and designer studying the unseen structures of reality: spatial modulations, timescapes, smell fluxes, collective memory,
and perceptive structures. My work spans across various mediums.
