Guy A. Dumont received his Diplôme d'Ingénieur from ENSAM, Paris, France in 1973 and his PhD in electrical engineering from McGill University in 1977. In 1973-74, and again from 1977 to 1979, he worked for Tioxide France. From 1979 to 1989, he worked with Paprican, the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada. In 1989, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC where he is a Professor. From 1989 to 1999, he held the Senior NSERC/Paprican Industrial Research Chair in Process Control.
Dr. Dumont has won various awards including a 1979 IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control Honorable Paper Award; the IEEE Control Systems Society 1998 Control Systems Technology Award and NSERC Synergy Awards, in 1999 for the development of the technology behind Universal Dynamics’ BrainWave adaptive controller, and in 2002 for the development of Honeywell’s Intellimap cross-directional control loop-shaping technology.
Dr. Dumont's current research interests are: adaptive control, distributed parameter system control, control loop performance monitoring, predictive control, with applications to the process industries, mainly pulp and paper. Recently, he has expanded his interests to biomedical engineering, particularly to biomedical signal processing and automatic drug delivery. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and of the BC Advanced Systems Institute and a member of ISA, PAPTAC and TAPPI.
