Biographie

Sébastien Tremblay est professeur à l’Université Laval, professeur honoraire de l’Université de Cardiff au Royaume-Uni et directeur du laboratoire Co-DOT (www.co-dot.ulaval.ca). Depuis 2015, il est le directeur de l’Unité mixte de recherche en sciences urbaines (umr-su.com), un consortium regroupant la Ville de Québec, l’Université Laval, Thales Recherche et Technologie Canada, le Parc technologique du Québec métropolitain et l’Institut national de la recherche scientifique. Son programme de recherche porte principalement sur les enjeux de la cognition dans le but de maximiser la performance humaine et le bien-être dans une variété de domaines allant de la sécurité publique aux transports et au divertissement. Ses travaux sont financés notamment par le Conseil de recherche en sciences naturelles et génie du Canada (CRSNG), le Conseil de recherche en sciences sociales du Canada (CRSH), les Fonds de recherche du Québec, l’industrie (Thales, Ubisoft et CAE) et divers autres organismes. Il détient un doctorat en psychologie cognitive (1999) de l’Université de Cardiff et a effectué un postdoctorat dans le cadre d’un partenariat entre Cardiff et l’organisme britannique Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA; maintenant QinetiQ).
