The faces behind our success

Cindy Beaudoin

Senior Research Advisor

I hold a doctorate in psychology - clinical neuropsychology from the University of Montreal. My doctoral work, carried out under the supervision of Miriam Beauchamp, focused on the assessment of social cognition at preschool age. In addition to my clinical experience working with children, adolescents and adults with various problems, I have been involved in psychological research in Quebec since 2005. I have thus contributed to research in various fields including psychiatry, evaluation of community programs, cognitive sciences and neurotraumatology.

I graduated from the joint doctoral program in communication at UQAM, Université de Montréal and Concordia University. I am a lecturer and research professional at the University of Montreal, with extensive experience in the management of research, research-development and research-creation projects in the field of digital information and communication technologies, in particular artificial intelligence, conversational agents (chatbot) and immersive media (virtual reality and 360 videos).
