Sylvie Nadeau is Director of Équipe de recherche en sécurité du travail (ÉREST), a post she has held since 2005. Professor Nadeau’s research and development efforts focus primarily on the management of health and safety risks, integrated risk management, and the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders. An expert in the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and an Associate Member of ÉREST, Yvan Petit is in charge of the imaging and orthopedics laboratory at Sacré-Cœur Hospital in Montreal. He has notably contributed to the development of surgical tools and implants, and is actively involved in bone quality assessment, a field that attempts to prevent and repair fractures.Stéphane Hallé is an expert in energy exchange analysis and air flow in buildings, and Deputy Director of ÉREST. His research focuses on ventilation strategies, indoor air quality, and tools to model the transportation, dispersion and agglomeration of nanoparticles.François Morency is an expert in the modeling and simulation of industrial problems associated with the transportation of particles and ice formation, and Deputy Director of ÉREST. His research focuses on modeling tools that enable the prediction of ice accumulation on complex geometries in the field of aeronautics and on preventing the harmful effects caused by the dispersion of nanoparticles. Louis Dufresne’s field of expertise is related to fluid dynamics and in particular to the application of CFD to the study of vortical and turbulent flows. His present research activities involve the numerical simulation of the atmospheric boundary layer, wake vortex dynamics, and mixing dynamics. Professor Dufresne also teaches courses in fluid dynamics and aerodynamics.
