Dr. Saxena is a research scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) where he leads a vehicle powertrain research program. Sam completed his Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley in 2011 with a focus on the development of advanced internal combustion engine technology. Upon joining Berkeley Lab in early 2012, Dr. Saxena led research on modeling of vehicle powertrain systems. As part of Berkeley Lab's powertrain research program, Dr. Saxena leads the development of V2G-Sim, a research platform for understanding how vehicles will interface with the grid. Prior to beginning his Ph.D, Dr. Saxena worked in industry on vehicle powertrain research at the Toronto-based companies: Magna Powertrain Engine Technologies Group, and Multimatic Technical Center. Dr. Saxena has been recognized in the Canadian House of Commons for his leadership excellence and has several awards for his demonstrated excellence in teaching and research, including the NSERC Canada Graduate Scholarship, and serves as a reviewer, session organizer, and editorial board member for leading conferences and journals in combustion, engines and powertrain technologies. After hours, Sam enjoys trail runs in the hills around LBNL.
