Benoit Gosselin (S’02–M’08) obtained the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Eng. from École Polytechnique de Montréal in 2009, and he was an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2010. He is currently a Full Professor at the Depart. of ECE at Université Laval, where he holds the Canada Research Chair in Smart Biomedical Microsystems. His research interests include wireless microsystems for brain computer interfaces, analog/mixed-mode and RF integrated circuits for neural engineering, interface circuits of implantable sensors/actuators and point-of-care diagnostic microsystems for personalized healthcare.

Dr Gosselin is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems and he is Chair and Founder of the IEEE CAS/EMB Quebec Chapter (2015 Best New Chapter Award). He served on the committees of several int’l conferences such as IEEE BIOCAS, IEEE NEWCAS, IEEE EMBC, IEEE LSC and IEEE ISCAS. Currently, he is Program Chair of the IEEE EMBC 2020 held in Montreal, Canada. His significant contribution to biomedical microsystems research led to the commercialization of the first wireless microelectronic platform for optogenetics and electrophysiology with live animals by his partner Doric Lenses Inc. He has received several awards, including the prestigious NSERC Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in Science and Engineering, and the Prix Génie Innovation 2019 of the Quebec professional engineering association OIQ.
