About the Presenters

Dr. Javier Gazzarri is a Principal Application Engineer at MathWorks in Novi, Michigan, focusing on the use of physical modeling tools as an integral part of Model Based Design. Much of his work gravitates around battery modeling, from cell-level to system-level, parameter estimation for model correlation, battery management system design, cell balancing, aging, and state-of-charge estimation. Before joining MathWorks, Javier worked on fuel cell modeling at the National Research Council of Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia. He received a Mechanical Engineering Bachelor’s degree from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina), a M.A.Sc. degree (Inverse Methods applied to surface sensor design), and a Ph.D. degree (Solid Oxide Fuel Cell degradation modeling) both from the University of British Columbia (Canada).

Chirag Patel works with engineers in control system design to streamline the transition from desktop simulations to real-time testing and hardware-in-loop (HIL) testing. Prior to joining MathWorks, Chirag worked at Lucid Motors, where he led the efforts of adopting Model-Based Design for electric powertrain, developed algorithms for battery management system and built HIL test system for vehicle control systems. While at Cessna Aircraft Company, Chirag developed simulations for electro-hydraulics systems, built iron bird test rigs for anti-skid brake systems, and designed integrated environmental control system for business jets.
