Connect with Joachim Dunant
Joachim is an engineer with a background in neuroscience and computer science. He is eager to better understand the mechanisms of the brain and to develop software applications for the Wyss Center. He wants to use his knowledge to help others.
Joachim Dunant joined the Wyss Center as a Neuroengineer for Brain-Computer-Interface Project, in April 2023, where he works closely with several teams, evaluating the results and functionality of different projects. He also creates tests, integrates algorithms, and analyzes data to ensure that the Wyss Center's products work exactly as intended. He must have a strong understanding of BCI systems and patient needs.
Joachim earned a Master’s degree in computer science from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where he studied computer science and computational neuroscience. For his Master’s thesis, he worked on the integration of vibrotactile feedback in a BCI, working with ALS patients. Over the past five years, he has worked on numerous projects ranging from brain activity data acquisition to motor control simulation. His main interests are in software development, machine learning, new technologies and brain mechanisms.
