Full Professor, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Philippe Cardou received the B.Eng. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Université Laval, Quebec City, Canada, in 2003, and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from McGill University in 2008. Since September 2007, he has been with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Université Laval, where he is a Full Professor and a member of the Robotics Laboratory. His research interests are related to robotics and mechanisms: kinematics, in general, and in particular, mechanism design and cable-driven parallel robots.

Dr. Cardou has published several articles on these topics in international scientific journals and conferences. In 2017, he was the General Co-Chair of the Third International Conference on Cable-Driven Parallel Robots in Quebec City.
