    Career Summary

    LJacques de Guise, a Full Professor at the Department of Automated Production Engineering of the École de technologie supérieure, is interested in the digital processing of 2D and 3D medical images, 3D modeling, computer-assisted biometrics and the functional evaluation of the locomotor and vascular systems. After completing his Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering at the École Polytechnique Montreal in 1977, he did his graduate studies at the Biomedical Engineering Institute of École Polytechnique and the University of Montreal, where he obtained his PhD in 1984 under the direction of Prof. Fernand A. Roberge. He then spent two years at the Computer Vision and Robotics Laboratory at McGill University as an NSERC postdoctoral fellow under the direction of Prof. Marti D. Levine from 1984-1986. He then worked as a NSERC postdoctoral fellow in the Biomedical Engineering Institute, where he did 3D medical imaging work from 1986 to 1990. In 1990, he accepted a position in the Department of Automated Production Engineering at the École de technologie supérieure. He spent 1997-1998 as a Guest Professor at the Biomechanics Laboratory of the École nationale supérieure d'arts et métiers (ENSAM) in Paris. During that time, he had the opportunity of working with a team associated with the work of G. Charpak, recipient of the 1992 Nobel Prize for Physics, on new low radiation radiographic imaging technologies.

    Jacques de Guise is an Associate Professor at the Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Montreal and an Associate Professor at the Biomechanics Laboratory at ENSAM in Paris. He is also an Associate Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Institute of École Polytechnique Montreal and an active member of the CHU Sainte-Justine and CHUM research centers. He is the Director of the Imaging and Orthopedics Research Laboratory (LIO) of the École de technologie supérieure/CHUM Research Center.
