BMW Mini E, AC Propulsion

During 2008 and 2010, I acted as the bench and dynamometer Test Engineer to fulfill the drive system request for the

global BMW Mini E fleet. My responsibilities included designing new equipment to simulate the vehicle inputs as well as

designing board level testers. In addition, I was in charge of troubleshooting components or units that failed during testing

and finding the root cause of why and how they failed. Further into the project, I became in charge of warranty support

for the Mini E fleet which expanded my responsibilities to tracking, investigation and reporting of failure modes.

Luxgen MPV, AC Propulsion

During 2009 and 2011, I became responsible for the testing department guaranteeing the quality of the products. I

created a database to track testing results to identify if there are variations in the power electronics. In addition, I was in

charge of educating Luxgen engineers about the Generation 2 drive system as they became AC Propulsion’s second


Foton Midi, AC Propulsion

During 2010, I was responsible for designing accessory products such as air conditioner controllers, cabin heater

switches and wiring schematics for the Foton Midi conversion which later on became a fleet of electric taxis that are

operating in Beijing, China. Currently, I am in charge of championing Global 8D analysis for failures that are occurring in

the field in Emotor Advance.

Generation 3 Air Cooled Drive System, Emotor Advance

Upon my arrival in Emotor Advance Beijing, I was assigned to the task of assisting the manufacturing and testing setup

of AC Propulsion’s Generation 3 Air Cooled Drive System. My tasks involved ensuring that documentations regarding

manufacturing are coherent, accurate and updated. Furthermore, I performed PPAP evaluation on subcontracted

component manufacturer

NEVS /SAAB 9-3, Emotor Advance

In early 2011, I was assigned to the task of being the liaison between Emotor Advance and NEVS for a prospective

Beijing electric taxi project. My responsibilities included evaluating customer requirements and advising both the customer

and AC Propulsion’s R&D team on which requirements are achievable. I was also involved in projecting manufacturing

capabilities and assessing resources needed as well as consulting on the vehicle conversion.

Generation 4 Liquid Cooled Drive System, Emotor Advance

In late 2011, I became in charge of all manufacturing related planning on AC Propulsion’s Generation 4 Liquid Cooled

System. The planning encompasses all aspects of manufacturing such as; quality plan, timing, facilities, capital requirement,

supplier and component sourcing, process control, risk management and training.
