Pascal Giard, P.Eng., Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering at École de technologie supérieure (ETS), a member of the Université du Québec network.

I am actively looking for talented students interested in wireless communications, signal processing, and machine learning. Have a look at the Open Positions.


I received my B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in electrical engineering from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Montréal, Canada, in 2006 and 2009, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from McGill University, Montréal, Canada.

From 2009 to 2010, I worked as a research professional in the NSERC - Ultra Electronics Chair in Wireless Emergency and Tactical Communications at ÉTS. From 2007 to 2016, I was a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical Engineering, ÉTS. I also collaborated as a research professional in the Research Chair in Design Methodology for Highly Integrated and Reliable Hybrid Systems (CRICSH) at ÉTS from 2012 to 2016. Then, from 2016 to 2018, I worked with Prof. Andreas Burg as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Telecommunication Circuits Laboratory (TCL), Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland.

I am currently an Associate Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department of the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Montréal, Canada. My research interests are in the design and implementation of signal processing systems with a focus on embedded systems, connected objects, and modern error-correcting codes.

I received the Best Experimental-Demonstration Award at the IEEE CASS & ReSMiQ Innovation Day 2015. I serve as a reviewer for several IEEE journals and conferences, and served as an Associate Editor for the Elsevier MicroElectronics Journal (MEJ) from 2016 to 2020. I am currently Associate Editor for the Coding area of IEEE Communications Letters.
