Jason Siegel is an Assistant Research Scientist in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in 2010, his Masters in 2006, and his Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering in 2004 at the University of Michigan. Currently, he is working on modeling and control of Lithium-Ion batteries. Using neutron imaging to better understand how Lithium is distributed throughout the electrode in high-power applications, Jason is advancing the knowledge and capabilities of Fuel Cells and Lithium Ion Batteries. His current project can be found here
Jason is also involved in several antique car restoration projects including a 1960 Triumph TR3 and a 1968 Jaguar E-Type. He also converted a 1980 Kawasaki KZ440 into an all-electric motorcycle (The Kawazapi). It is no wonder that when EM Racing was looking for an advisor, Jason was the go to choice. As part of the team, he has helped select components, create wiring diagrams, and ensure the team is meeting his ever-stringent safety standards. We look forward to having him on-board as our main advisor as we pursue new battery technologies and applications.
