Dr. Qingguo Li

Ingenuity Labs Member Qingguo Li, Exoskeleton Prototype

Walking just might get easier thanks to researchers at Queen’s University. They’ve designed an exoskeleton prototype that’s meant to help people walk farther, while using less energy. This device is a subject of a new study in the world-leading academic journal, “Science.” Click to read Article Dr. Michael Shepertycky and Dr. Qingguo Li, two minds …

Dr. Joshua Woods, Mitchell Professor, Intelligent Infrastructure Monitoring

A technological environment is a built environment. Dr. Josh Woods is rethinking how we can sense and measure how buildings “feel” – and reinvent how we relate to the structures we live and work in. He’s a faculty member in our Civil Engineering department; using AI and new ways of measuring materials, his work will …
