François Leduc-Primeau received the B.Eng. degree in 2007, the M.Eng. degree in 2010, and a Ph.D. degree in 2016, all in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of McGill University (Montreal, Canada). In 2016-17 he was a postdoctoral researcher at IMT Atlantique (Brest, France), and in 2018, he was a postdoctoral researcher at École de Technologie Supérieure (Montreal, Canada) and a lecturer at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). In 2019, he joined the department of Electrical Engineering of Polytechnique Montréal as an Assistant Professor.

His research work is at the crossroads between digital system design and telecommunications, with a focus on improving the energy efficiency of various digital systems used in signal processing and communications.
