Dr Benoit Duchet

Benoit Duchet

Royal Academy of Engineering/Rosetrees Research Fellow

Dr Benoit Duchet was awarded a Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering (co-funded by the Rosetrees) in November 2023. With this award, Benoit became a new principal investigator in the MRC BNDU. Bringing together his expertise in biomedical engineering and computational/mathematical neuroscience, his independent Fellowship research aims to engineer next-generation brain stimulation therapies and diagnostics shaped by mathematical models. Benoit is pleased to consider expressions of interest from prospective D.Phil. students to work on projects aligned with his Fellowship research.

Benoit graduated from Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, France, with an engineering degree in 2010. He then earned an M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London in 2011, where he conducted a research project in tissue engineering to repair bone. Following his M.Sc., he worked as a Research and Development Engineer in the medical devices industry in Paris until September 2016, contributing to low radiation 3D imaging of the skeleton.

Benoit completed his D.Phil. at the University of Oxford in June 2020 as part of Prof. Rafal Bogacz’s Group in the MRC BNDU, and then pursued postdoctoral research with Prof. Rafal Bogacz. Benoit's doctoral and postdoctoral work was focused on studying the neural circuits affected by neurological disorders (such as Parkinson’s disease) through mathematical and computational methods, with the aim of improving therapeutic interventions such as deep brain stimulation.
