Professor Marc Dubé‚ was born in Welland, Ontario, Canada, in 1964. He received his B.Sc. degree from the Department of Chemical Engineering at Queen’s University in 1987. He then obtained his M.A.Sc. degree from the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Waterloo in 1989. He was supervised by Professors Alexander Penlidis and Kenneth F. O’Driscoll and studied copolymerization kinetics and mathematical modelling. He subsequently worked for Polysar on a research project concerning ionic polymerizations for a short period. In 1990, he worked on contract for the Uniroyal Chemical Co. U.S.A. modelling emulsion copolymerizations. In late 1990, he resumed his studies at the University of Waterloo and obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in early 1995. He worked under the supervision of Professor Alexander Penlidis and studied multicomponent polymerization kinetics and modelling. Following this, Dr. Dubé worked on a research contract for ICI Worldwide studying high temperature polymerizations. He joined the University of Ottawa as an Assistant Professor in 1996.

In 2006, Dr. Dubé was appointed Chair of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering; his mandate ended in 2011. He is currently serving a 5-year mandate as Vice-Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Engineering (starting in July 2015).

Dr. Dubé is a registered Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario, is a member of the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (Chemical Institute of Canada, CIC), and in 2011 was named a Fellow of the CIC. In 2012, he was named a Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC). Professor Dubé was awarded the 2017 George S. Glinski Award for Research Excellence in the Faculty of Engineering. His research priorities are in sustainable polymer reaction engineering.
