I am a Ph.D., Electrical Engineer with more than 6 years of experience in the industry. Currently, I work at Schneider Electric, France, as an R&D Motor Control Engineer. Between 2013 and 2019 I held several positions at Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi automaker all in EV/HEV power-train motor control R&D.
I have contributed to several projects, I have authored and co-authored numerous patents and scientific articles, and I serve as a Reviewer in several IEEE Transactions Journals. My areas of expertise include Modeling, Control and Estimation applied to Electric Motor Drives.
September 2012 – Graduation
I graduated as an Electrical Engineer from the Lebanese University, Beirut, Lebanon, with M.Sc. in Automatic Control from Supélec Engineering School, Gif-sur-Yvette, France.
June 2013 – First Job in R&D
I started to work as an R&D Engineer for Renault-Nissan automaker, in Guyancourt, France.
– Designing Control Algorithms for Electric Motors Drives.
– Conducting ePowertrain Projects from Advanced Engineering to Development.
– Supervising PhD Students and Interns.
May 2016 – Ph.D. Defense
I got my Ph.D. in Automatic Control from Paris-Saclay University, France.
September 2017 – First Engineering Award
I received the Renault-Nissan Alliance Engineering Executive Award, in recognition of my contribution to the pre-development phase of the project Electric-PowerTrain 2020.
From 2016 to 2018 – First Teaching Experience
While working at Renault, I was a Part-time instructor at CentraleSupélec Engineering School for 3 years 2016, 2017 and 2018.
Course tutorials: Automatic Control Systems.
From 2016 to 2019 – First Supervising Experience
I supervised a Ph.D. student, Amir MESSALI, who successfully defended his thesis in November 2019, at Ecole Centrale Nantes (ECN). He made remarkable contributions to high-frequency voltage injection techniques for electric motor control.
During this period I supervised 2 internships (engineering final year projects) at Renault on direct torque control (DTC), in 2017, and rotor temperature estimation, in 2018.
Also, I followed the work of Mehdi TAHERZADEH, during his post-doc at ECN, on flux and torque estimation in synchronous traction motors.
July 2019 – to Schneider Electric
I started as a senior R&D Engineer with Schneider Electric, Pacy-sur-Eure, France.
Designing Control and Monitoring Algorithms for Electric Motors Drives.
