Director, Transportation and Power Systems Division
Dr. Thomas Wallner is the Division Director for the Transportation and Power Systems Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He previously managed the Advanced Mobility and Grid Integration Technology Research section in Argonne’s Center for Transportation Research.
Rajesh Ahluwalia manages the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen group in Argonne National Laboratory’s Transportation and Power Systems division. He is a co-developer of GCTool (General Computational Toolkit), a software package that helps design, analyze, and optimize automotive and stationary distributed fuel cell power generation systems, as well as other power-plant configurations.
Program Lead, Interoperability and Grid Integration
Keith Hardy is the Director of Argonne National Laboratory’s Electric Vehicle (EV)-Smart Grid Interoperability Center, which plays a key role in supporting global harmonization of standards and technology for the EV-grid interface, as well as charging interoperability to ensure future electric vehicles and charging stations worldwide work together seamlessly.
Douglas Longman is theManager of Engine Research at Argonne National Laboratory. This research spans internal combustion engine experimental study of fundamental combustion properties, low-temperature combustion, heavy-duty IC engine biofuels, and large engine stationary and locomotive engine research, microturbines, and combined heat and power systems.
Interim Director of the Center for Decarbonization Solutions Deployment (CDSD)
Aymeric Rousseau is the Director of the Vehicle and Mobility Systems Department. For the past 20 years, he has been evaluating the impact of advanced vehicle and transportation technologies from a mobility and energy point of view through system simulations with Autonomie (vehicle system simulation), RoadRunner (connected and automated vehicles), Aeronomie (aviation) and POLARIS (large-scale transportation system simulation).
Director Advanced Propulsion and Power Department; Director AI Applications Initiative
Sibendu Som leads a Computational Fluid Dynamics team at Argonne National Laboratory that focuses on developing nozzle-flow, spray, and combustion models; and high-performance computing for internal combustion engine applications. The team develops predictive simulation capabilities to advance high-efficiency low-emission engines and the implementation of uncertainty quantification for engine simulations.
