Raj Sekar, a senior mechanical engineer, leads the Engine and Emissions Research group at Argonne, which conducts research on advanced engine and emissions reduction concepts. He works with automobiles, trucks, and locomotives.
Sekar developed experimental engineering capability in the area of engine and vehicle research. Argonne’s Center for Transportation Research, which has a well established reputation in assessments, needed an experimental capability to grow further in transportation research. Starting from the ground up, he helped build a group of engineers and technicians, along with experimental facilities, to help Argonne become a leading laboratory in transportation research.
