Current Work

My research focuses on the modeling of electro-thermal systems and components such as batteries and battery packs. The performance of batteries is closely related to their operating temperature; if a battery is to hot, its lifetime degrades. By modeling these components and integrating them with HVAC components, we can better understand and control a variety of power systems, such as those that exist in HEVs.
