Quentin Boehler was born in Strasbourg in 1990. He received a M.S. degree in mechatronics from INSA Strasbourg in 2013, and a Ph.D. degree in robotics from ICube laboratory, University of Strasbourg in 2016 in collaboration with the LIRMM in Montpellier. His thesis focused on tensegrity mechanisms and variable stiffness devices with application to MR-​compatible robotics, and was awarded the best thesis award from the research commission of the University of Strasbourg, and the first prize at the 2016 Ph.D. thesis awards from GDR Robotique.

He joined the Multi-​Scale Robotics Lab in 2017 as a postdoctoral associate. He is currently senior scientist and his research is on magnetic actuation for medical robotics, including the development and analysis of electromagnetic navigation systems, and of soft magnetic robots.
