Hi! I'm Yannick Roy, and I'm all about Neurotechnology.

“If the brain were so simple we could understand it, we would be so simple we couldn’t.”

I am obsessed with Neurotechnology and I’m on a mission to facilitate its development.

I believe in Human Enhancement and I think we live in the best time in history.

What a time to be alive!

I Got The Skills

I get sh*t done. I like to surround myself with talented individuals to lead and manage projects. I work hard – first in, last out – type of person, I lead by example and I inspire with my passion and commitment. I have the technical knowledge with my engineering degree, the scientific knowledge with my PhD in progress and a business oriented mind with my current and previous leadership positions. But above all, I’m agile and a life-long learner.

My Current Roles

I am always involved in all spheres around Neurotechnology, from science to technology to education to business to the community.

This 360 vision, experience and understanding of the field is what makes me very valuable to an organization (and obviously my extended network in the field).

Executive Director

I’m the Co-Founder and Executive Director of NeuroTechX, an international nonprofit organization aiming to facilitate the advancement of neurotechnology.
