Alain Tessier joined Concordia’s Department of Physics in 2002. He was instrumental in setting up the physics laboratories when they moved from the Sir George Williams Campus to the to Loyola Campus in the newly constructed Richard J. Renaud Science Complex that includes teaching facilities, offices and laboratories, and features energy-efficient sustainable architecture.
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.
A natural-born teacher, Alain is best known for his gracious and generous approach in sharing his expertise.
