She is currently working towards a master’s degree in industrial engineering at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. Her research project is being done through the Mitacs Accelerate program, which has allowed her to work part time for a Drummondville company, Équifab inc., where she is implementing her research project. Her research topic involves identifying the requirements for implementing Industry 4.0 in manufacturing SMEs in Quebec. Her very first article was just accepted in FAIM 2020; it should be published by the end of the year.
Since she’s still a student, Marie has gotten involved with the Quebec Engineering Competition 2021. She is co-chair of the organizing committee, alongside her colleague Marc-Antoine Roy (who also received a New Generation Scholarship last year). Congratulations Marie, what a journey!
