Mr. Aimez holds a degree in electrical engineering from the Université de Rouen in France, a degree in applied physics from Kingston University in the United Kingdom, and a degree in electrical engineering from the Université de Sherbrooke. A professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, he is also Director of Scientific Partnerships at the MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre (C2MI), a centre of excellence which brings together industrial and academic partners to accelerate the marketing of micro-nanotechnology. Mr. Aimez is also a founding member of the Université de Sherbrooke’s 3IT.Nano platform. In recent years, he has enabled many strategic industrial partnerships in the micro-nanotechnology sector.
He is currently working to develop a solar technology park at the Université de Sherbrooke, which aims to integrate multiple sources of solar energy production and renewable energy management, in collaboration with Hydro-Sherbrooke. His work has led to over 200 publications/participations at conferences, and includes many collaborations with various industrial partners in France and in Canada.
Mr. Aimez is a cofounder of the CNRS International Joint Unit, Laboratoire Nanotechnologies et Nanosystèmes (LN2) [Nanotechnology and Nanosystems Laboratory]. Benefiting from a unique scientific positioning linked to many academic and industrial partners on both sides of the Atlantic, LN2 has become a point of contact between Europe and North America in the micro-nanotechnology field.
