Clément Gosselin (FASME, FIEEE, FRSC) holds the Canada Research Chair in Robotics and Mechatronics at Université Laval. His research interests are kinematics, dynamics and control of robotic mechanical systems with a particular emphasis on the mechanics of grasping, the kinematics and dynamics of parallel manipulators and the development of human-friendly robots and haptic devices. His work in the aforementioned areas has been the subject of numerous publications in international journals and conferences. He is directing several research initiatives, including collaborations with Canadian and foreign high-technology companies and he has trained more than 120 graduate students.
He is currently an Associate Editor of the ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics and a Senior Editor of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters. Dr. Gosselin received several awards including the ASME DED Mechanisms and Robotics Committee Award in 2008, the ASME Machine Design Award in 2013 and the IFToMM Award of Merit in 2019. He was appointed Officer of the Order of Canada in 2010 for contributions to research in parallel mechanisms and underactuated systems.
