Aymeric Rousseau

Manager, Systems Modeling and Control Section
- Energy Systems

Aymeric Rousseau manages the Vehicle Modeling and Control Section at Argonne National Laboratory.  He received his engineering degree at the Industrial System Engineering School in La Rochelle, France, in 1997. He then worked for PSA Peugeot in the Hybrid Electric Vehicle research department and joined Argonne in 1999.

While at Argonne, Rousseau has been responsible for the development of the Powertrain Systems Analysis Toolkit (PSAT). Since 2006, he has led the development of a new Plug&Play software architecture called Autonomie. Argonne developed Autonomie in collaboration with General Motors to accelerate the development and introduction of advanced technologies for fuel consumption improvements.
