Biographical Sketch

Dr. Genevieve Palardy received her BEng from the University of Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, Canada) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She obtained her MEng and PhD degrees from McGill University (Montreal, Canada), as part of the Structures and Composite Materials Laboratory in Mechanical Engineering. After completing her PhD, she worked for one year as a research associate at Bombardier Aerospace in the Composites Development Department (Montreal, Canada). From 2014 to 2017, she was a postdoctoral researcher in the Structural Integrity & Composites Group in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft, The Netherlands). In 2017, she was appointed as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering at LSU and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2023. Her research themes involve fundamental knowledge behind ultrasonic-assisted consolidation, repair and joining of composite materials (thermoplastic and thermoset matrices), structural health monitoring using multifunctional composites, robotic additive manufacturing of fiber-reinforced thermosets, flexible hybrid polymer-metal fabrics for implant applications, and fiber-reinforced thermoset shape memory polymers (manufacturing and behavior under cyclic loading). Dr. Palardy received several research and teaching awards, such as the NSF CAREER Award in 2021, the LSU Alumni Association Rising Faculty Research Award in 2021, the LSU College of Engineering Award for Instructor Excellence in 2023, and the Michael R. Mangham Tiger Athletic Foundation Undergraduate Teaching Award in 2020.
