Loïc Boulon received the master degree in electrical and automatic control engineering from the University of Lille (France), in 2006. Then, he obtained a PhD in electrical engineering from University of Franche-Comté (France). Since 2010, he is a Professor at UQTR and he works into the Hydrogen Research Institute (Full Professor since 2016).
His work deals with modeling, control and energy management of multiphysics systems. His research interests include hybrid electric vehicles, energy and power sources (fuel cell systems, batteries and ultracapacitors). He has published more than 120 scientific papers in peer-reviewed international journals and international conferences and given over 35 invited conferences all over the word. Since 2019, he is the world most cited authors of the topic « Proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC); Fuel cells; Cell stack » in Elsevier SciVal.
In 2015, Loïc Boulon was general chair of the IEEE-Vehicular Power and Propulsion Conference in Montréal (QC, Canada). Prof. Loïc Boulon is now VP-Motor Vehicles of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society and he found the « International Summer School on Energetic Efficiency of Connected Vehicles » and the « IEEE VTS Motor Vehicle Challenge ». He is the holder of the Canada Research Chair in Energy Sources for the Vehicles of the future.
