Biography

Edu Ruiz is Associated Professor at the Mechanical Engineering Department at Ecole Polytechnique of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He has obtained his engineering degree in aeronautics from the Aeronautical Institute (Argentine) and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Ecole Polytechnique where he has awarded with the prix to the best thesis of the Ecole in 2004. His main scientific interest is related to the design and manufacturing of composite materials. He has carried out researches in the modeling of mechanical properties evolution during phase changes of thermosetting polymers, macro/micro mechanical analyses and process optimization of composites manufacturing.
