Professor Ghyslain Gagnon, who teaches Electrical engineering at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), is interested in microelectronics, in wireless communications, and in signal processing. His strong interest in technological arts culminated in a collaboration with Jean Dubois in designing the Circuit de Bachelard; the two also collaborated in another interactive work presented during the Biennale de Montréal in 2011.
He has participated in many research projects through industrial partnerships in the area of movement analysis, radio signal positioning and electric energy consumption measurement systems.
Ghyslain Gagnon is currently the director of the ÉTS Telecommunications and Microelectronics Integration Laboratory.
Circuit de Bachelard was also created in collaboration with urban designer Katherine Ste-Marie, students Sébastien Rompré and Jean-Philippe Côté, ÉTS, and Sébastien Langevin, Information Officer, ÉTS
