I am a researcher and designer interested in the unseen structures of reality: spatial modulations, timescapes, smell fluxes, collective memory, and architectural models of mental states. My work spans across various mediums and takes place in the fields of URBAN DESIGN and NARRATIVE ARCHITECTURE. I was awarded 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) is about the power of smells to trigger various spatio-temporalities in the environment. I am pursuing a doctorate in Philosophy / Cognitive Science at UQÀM on the subject of the spatiotemporal perception shaped by the olfactory memory in order to develop a comprehensive compendium for the architect, the planner and the urban designer wishing to add the dimension of smells to their concept. 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.
