Serge Pelletier | MA UX Design, PhD Cognitive Psychology (Candidate)

Serge’s work aims at unifying design and cognitive sciences research approaches in order to better understand the fundamental human being that motivates the behaviors of every specific user. Incidentally, a design that relies on a solid interdisciplinary foundation allows the creation of interactive environments that are in harmony with the way information is processed in the human brain during specific tasks, therefore resulting in a much more natural and fluid user experience.

Following his two Bachelor degrees in fine arts and graphic design, he completed a Masters degree in User Experience design, and is currently a candidate for the Ph.D. in Cognitive Sciences. Furthermore, he teaches Interaction Design and User Experience Design at Laval University in Québec City, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
