Prof. Cheryl Quenneville

Dr. Cheryl Quenneville is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and an Associate Member of the School of Biomedical Engineering. Her research interests include the development of enhanced injury tolerance criteria, translation of those to industry via Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATDs), and the development of novel protective and orthopaedic techniques. She earned her MESc in Biomedical Engineering and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Western University, and has previously worked as a Survivability Specialist at General Dynamics Land Systems - Canada.
