Denis Rodrigue obtained a B.Sc. (1991) and a Ph.D. (1996) in chemical engineering from Université de Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, Canada) with a specialization in non-Newtonian fluid mechanics. In 1996, he moved to Université Laval (Quebec City, Canada) as an assistant professor of chemical engineering where he is now full professor since 2005. Professor Rodrigue has been the vice-president (2002-2003) and president (2003-2005) of the Quebec Polymer Society (QPS), and an active member of the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) as the student faculty advisor since 1997. He is currently serving on the Advisory Editorial Board of the Journal of Cellular Plastics and Cellular Polymers.
