Vincent Jacquemet was born in Sion, Switzerland. He received his Master degree in Physics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in April 2000, with the second best overall grade in the university (Alumni Association's award). His master thesis focused on the theoretical analysis of a statistical model of mass aggregation.
In 2000, he joined the Signal Processing Institute at EPFL, where he worked on computer modeling of the electrical activity of the heart in the LausanneHeart group. In June 2004, he received his Ph.D. degree for a thesis entitled "A Biophysical Model of Atrial Fibrillation and Electrograms: Formulation, Validation and Applications". Then, he worked as a postdoc researcher in the LausanneHeart group at the EPFL and the Lausanne University Hospital.
In February 2007, he joined the Biomedical Engineering Department at Duke University with a "fellowship for advanced researcher" from the Swiss National Science Foundation under the supervision of Craig Henriquez.
He was appointed "Professeur sous octroi adjoint" (Assistant Professor; August 2009) and then "Professeur sous octroi agrégé" (Associate Professor; June 2014) at the University of Montreal (UdeM) in the Dept. of Physiology. His lab is located in the Research Center of the Hopital du Sacre-Coeur de Montreal.
He is a member of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IGB, UdeM), the Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM, McGill), and the "Groupe de Recherche en Sciences et Technologies Biomedicales" (GRSTB, Polytechnique Montreal). He is the recipient of career awards (Research scholar Junior 1 and Junior 2) from the Fonds de Recherche du Quebec en Sante (FRSQ).Research Interests
