I regularly accept graduate studies and internship directions. I seek for autonomous and proactive students in either of these fields:

  1. Kinesiology or related fields (occupational therapy, physical therapy, etc.) with strong interests and/or experience in technology, particularly in biomechanics, signal processing or instrumentation.
  2. Engineering (mechanical, biomedical, electrical, computer, etc.) with strong interests and/or experience in biomechanics, rehabilitation, sport training, adaptive sport training, etc.

Please contact me for more information.
