In 2013, Alexandre Giguère joined the multidisciplinary Pyrotech BEI team as an engineering physicist and expert in applied physics. He researches the origins and causes of fires and studies various failures in order to determine the probability of their involvement in the incidents. In 2001, he obtained a Ph.D. in Physics within the scope of his research at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique in Grenoble, France.
Alexandre has participated in various investigations pertaining to fires, water damage and mechanical failures, and he actively participates in identifying the issues related to the component parts at issue. He conducts post-disaster investigations on sites and prepares concise expert reports.
Previously, Alexandre was very active in university research. The dexterity, investigative method and knowledge he has accumulated over the years allow him to efficiently obtain and analyze all pertinent information. Author or co-author of more than twenty scientific publications recognized internationally, Alexandre can study a problem, understand the issues and their causes, and communicate his analysis in concise and accurate reports.
In winter, Alexandre practices alpine ski. In the summer, you will find him on a golf course in the region of Québec.
