Philippe Doyon-Poulin

Polytechnique Montréal

Assistant Professor

Specialist in: Cognitive engineering of human-machine systems

Philippe Doyon-Poulin worked in human factors engineering at Bombardier Aerospace from 2013 to 2019, where he was involved in flight-deck design and certification for the CSeries (now A220) and Global 7500 aircraft. He completed more than 500 hours of usability testing in a flight simulator with pilots, evaluating flight-deck ease-of-use and working to minimize pilot-equipment interaction errors. In 2014 he completed a PhD in industrial engineering at Polytechnique Montréal on the effects of visual clutter of flight-deck displays on pilot performance, workload and gaze pattern. His current research focus is cognitive engineering for man-machine systems, specifically design and evaluation of user interfaces for complex systems.
