Maxime DESCOTEAUX, PhD is Professor in Computer Science since 2009 at the Science Faculty of Sherbrooke University. In 2021, he became a member of the college of the Royal Society of Canada. He is the founder and director of the Sherbrooke Connectivity Imaging Laboratory (SCIL), where there are 10-15 graduate and medical students, and postdocs. He holds the Research Chair in NeuroInformatics and his research focuses on brain connectivity from state-of-the-art diffusion MRI and multi-modality acquisition, reconstruction, tractography, processing and visualization. The aim of the SCIL is to better understand structural connectivity, develop novel tractography algorithms, validate them and use them for human brain mapping and connectomics applications. Maxime Descoteaux did a post-doctorat fellow at NeuroSpin under the supervision of Cyril Poupon and Denis Le Bihan. He also obtained a PhD in Computer Science at INRIA Sophia Antipolis - Mediterranée, supervised by R. Deriche after he obtained a M.Sc under the supervision of K. Siddiqi in Computer Science at Center for Intelligent Machines, McGill University, where he also obtained a B.Sc, graduating from the joint honors Mathematics and Computer Science program. Pr Descoteaux holds the USherbrooke Institutional Research Chair in NeuroInformatics. He has been cited more than 12500+ times, his h/i-10index are 53/155 and has 150+ journal publications [google scholar]
