Center for Automotive Research expands research capabilities: Bilin Aksun Guvenc and Andrew May join faculty team
Center for Automotive Research (CAR) is pleased to welcome professors Bilin Aksun Guvenc and Andrew May to its faculty team. Aksun Guvenc’s research focus is in automotive control systems and intelligent transportation systems, while May researches tailpipe exhaust emissions from light- and heavy-duty vehicles.
Bilin Aksun Guvenc joins the university as a visiting professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and CAR. Her expertise is in automotive control systems—primarily vehicle dynamics controllers, such as electronic stability control, adaptive cruise control, cooperative adaptive cruise control, and collision warning and avoidance systems—and intelligent transportation systems. Additionally she is a member of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC) Technical Committees on Automotive Control and on Mechatronics, and is an experienced project evaluator and reviewer for the European Union Framework Programs. Aksun Guvenc worked as a researcher and principal investigator in several automotive industry projects. She comes to CAR from Istanbul Technical University and Istanbul Okan University where she was a professor.
Andrew May has been appointed as a senior research associate in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering. He will begin his appointment in the same department as tenure-track assistant professor effective September 1, 2015, at which time he will also become an Associate CAR Fellow. In these roles he will be investigating tailpipe exhaust emissions from light- and heavy-duty vehicles. Future research plans aligned with CAR include atmospheric impacts of new and emerging vehicle technologies and fuels, considering both emissions and atmospheric transformations. May joins Ohio State from Colorado State University, where he was a post-doctoral scholar in the Department of Atmospheric Science, following the completion of his doctorate in mechanical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
