Dr. Audrey Girouard

Audrey Girouard

I am an associate professor in the School of Information Technology at Carleton University. I teach in the Interactive Multimedia and Design undergraduate program, and in the master’s of Human Computer Interaction graduate program.

I was an adjunct assistant professor in the School of Computing at Queen’s University, and before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University working with Roel Vertegaal. I have received the Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from FQRNT for my ongoing work in 2010.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science at Tufts University, working with Robert Jacob. My thesis work focused on adaptive passive brain-computer interfaces for healthy users using non-invasive technology, specifically functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). My system used brain activity as an additional input, allowing for a lightweight adaptation of the interface in real time according to the user’s mental state. I received the PostGraduate Scholarship from NSERC for my doctoral studies. I was a visiting researcher in the InSitu group at INRIA/Universite de Paris-Sud, working with Wendy Mackay in the fall of 2008. In 2007, I completed my master’s in computer science at Tufts. Before coming to Tufts, I received my undergraduate degree in Software Engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal.
