In this episode, we interview Dr. Tim Bardouille. He’s a medical physicist and assistant professor
with Dalhousie’s Department of Physics and Atmospheric Sciences.

An early fascination with technology and philosophy sparked his desire to study physics. When
he learned about medical physics — a field focused on the role physics can play when applied in
health and medicine to diagnose and treat patients — he pursued it as a career path.

After working in industry for a few years, Dr. Bardouille went back to school to get his PhD and
worked towards shifting to a research career.

Today his research in Dal’s Biosignal Lab explores how to capture and analyze imaging data on
the brain signals associated with disorders of the motor system, with a goal of creating
technology that helps improve patient outcomes.

Dr. Bardouille tells us about his career path, his research, and his experience organizing a Black
Lives Matter protest in Halifax that led to forming Dal’s new Anti-Racism Action Team.
