Happy birthday Inès!

Happy birthday Inès!

Today we celebrated Inès’s birthday with a cake and some presents! She loves banana bags! If you meet with her, ask her about the story about the containers… 😉

Valentine’s day

Valentine’s day

Mont Bellevue

Mont Bellevue

People often ask me why I installed my lab in Sherbrooke. Aside scientific reasons, the city and its surrounding areas (Magog and Mont Orford National Park) are beautiful. Sherbrooke itself has a small montain in the middle of the city: Mont Bellevue. You can hike, […]
