Expertise: neuroimaging, EEG; multimodal integration
Louis Lemieux, PhD., is professor of Physics Applied to Medicine at the UCL Institute of Neurology, London, United Kingdom. Louis received his BSc in Physics from Université de Montréal, Canada, in 1982, MSc in Physics from the University of Toronto, Canada, in 1984 and PhD in Physics from Université de Montréal, Canada, in 1990. He published his first ever peer-reviewed scientific article in IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering based on his doctoral research. In 1990 he joined the newly reformed Epilepsy Research Group at the Institute of Neurology and National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London, UK as a postdoctoral research fellow on a project to devise multimodal image fusion solutions to assist the surgical team. In the mid-1990’s, the focus of his research gradually shifted to the application of multimodal functional imaging to localise and characterise epileptic networks in humans, for which he has received funding from the Medical Research Council, Action Medical Research, Epilepsy research UK and various other funding bodies. Of particular relevance are some of his contributions to the field of safety related to the introduction of EEG recording equipment in magnetic resonance imaging scanners. He has published more than 120 articles in international peer-reviewed journals. He took up the chairmanship of the University College London Centre for Neuroimaging Techniques in 2001. He was promoted to professor in 2004 and was elected treasurer of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping in 2008. He is a Clinical Scientist (UK Health Professions Council) and member of the Institute of Physics. Louis is member of the editorial board of four other international peer-reviewed scientific journals.
