Alain Tessier joined Concordia’s Department of Physics in 2002. He was instrumental in setting up the physics laboratories when they moved from Sir George Williams to Loyola in the newly constructed Richard J. Renaud Science Complex that includes teaching facilities, offices and laboratories, and features energy-efficient sustainable architecture.
In 2004, he became a part of Concordia’s Centre for Biological Applications of Mass Spectrometry (CBAMS) in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry where, to this day, he continues to support graduate students, researchers and members of the faculty with their scientific investigations, helping them get the best from their experiments.
Tessier graduated with a BSc in Physics in 1973 from l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières. Throughout his career in various research centres and units, he has developed his expertise in electronics, mechanics and instrumentation in the disciplines of physics and chemistry, in order to share his knowledge with his peers.
