Hello, I am Jean-Francois Bousquet, the founder of UW-Stream lab

I have been with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Dalhousie since July 2013.

My research passion is using semiconductors for communication systems. With my team, we learn new skills daily, from theory to experimentation. At Dalhousie, I apply my expertise in embedded systems and digital signal processing to underwater communications. Specifically, I'm focused on low-power electronics for enabling underwater networks.

I hold a B. Eng. in Electrical Engineering from École Polytechnique de Montréal (2001) and an M.Sc. (2007) and Ph.D. (2011) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Calgary. My research during my higher education years concentrated on implementing low-power integrated circuits for wireless communication applications. From 2009 to 2011, I worked as a high-speed analog IC designer at Ciena, where I played a role in developing coherent fiber optics communication networks.

Outside of work, I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends doing different water sports, and I am an avid sprint canoe-kayak adept.
