Aymeric Rousseau

Aymeric Rousseau is the Manager of the Vehicle Modeling and Simulation Section at Argonne National Laboratory.  He received his engineering diploma at the Industrial System Engineering School in La Rochelle, France in 1997.  After working for PSA Peugeot Citroen in the Hybrid Electric Vehicle research department, he joined Argonne National Laboratory in 1999 where he is now responsible for the development of Autonomie. He received an R&D100 Award in 2004 and a 2010 Vehicle Technologies Program R&D Award in 2010. He has authored more than 40 technical papers in the area of advanced vehicle technologies.

Dominik Karbowski

Dominik Karbowski received a Master’s degree in Science and Executive Engineering with a major in Energy Systems from Mines ParisTech, France, in 2006. At Argonne, Dominik works on modeling advanced powertrains such as hybrids or plug-in hybrids, both light- and heavy-duty. He focuses his research on vehicle level control optimization and powertrain design optimization.

Namdoo Kim

Namdoo Kim graduated in 2007 from the University of Sungkyunkwan, Korea, with a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. At Argonne, Namdoo has been working on modeling and control of multi-mode power split configurations.

Pierre Michel

Pierre Michel received his Ph.D. from the University of Orleans, France in 2015. His doctoral work focused on optimal control theory applied the energy management of Hybrid Electric Vehicles. Pierre joined Argonne in June 2015 and his current research focuses on the control and energy analysis of electrified connected and automated vehicles.

Ayman Moawad

Ayman Moawad is a research engineer in the Vehicle Modeling and Simulation group at Argonne National Laboratory. He graduated from the Ecole des Mines de Nantes, France in 2009 with a Master’s Degree in Science with a major in Automatics, Control Systems, and Industrial Computer Science. He focuses his research on light duty vehicle fuel consumption analysis as well as costs of powertrain to support the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA).

Sylvain Pagerit

Sylvain Pagerit received a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from the Ecole des Mines de Nantes, France, in 2000, as well as a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 2001. At Argonne, he focuses his work on the development of Autonomie and PSAT user interfaces, as well as automated optimization and sizing algorithms for advanced powertrains.

Phillip Sharer

Phillip Sharer is the Principal Investigator behind the Autonomie Process Architecture. He wrote the Automated Model Building Algorithm and authored the XML Argonne Model Descriptor Specification (XAMDS). He has been a Research Engineer at Argonne for 11 years. During this time, he also co-authored the Powertrain Systems Analysis Toolkit (PSAT).  He received a Master of Science in Engineering degree from Purdue University Calumet.

Ram Vijayagopal

Ram Vijayagopal graduated from the University of Michigan in 2008 with a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is currently working in Argonne National Laboratory’s Vehicle Modeling and Simulation group, where he is involved in the development of Autonomie. Before Argonne, he worked at Hitachi developing low level motor control algorithms for hybrid electric vehicles.
