Guillaume Dumas, PhD

Guillaume Dumas, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in Computational Psychiatry at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Montréal and the Director of the Precision Psychiatry and Social Physiology laboratory at the CHU Sainte-Justine research center. He holds the IVADO Chair in "AI and Mental Health", the FRQS J1 grant in "AI and Digital Health", and is an affiliated academic member of Mila – Quebec Artificial Intelligence Institute. He is also an affiliate member of the Human Brain and Behavior Laboratory, in the Center for Complex Systems and Brains Sciences of Florida Atlantic University. Dr. Dumas investigates the neurobiology of social cognition through the lens of complex systems theory and computational methods. His scientific interests connect with biomedical research, specifically in psychiatry, which requires the integration of biological, psychological, and social dimensions of the human mind.
