Philippe Malcolm did his PhD at Ghent University where he developed the first exoskeleton that reduced the metabolic cost of walking. He worked as a postdoc at Harvard University on the development of a soft textile based exosuit for reducing the metabolic cost of loaded walking. He joined UNO as an assistant professor in 2017. His long-term goals are to expand the diagnostic capabilities of gait analysis, improve gait rehabilitation and inform design of orthoses and exoskeletons.
