Marc-Antoine Beaudoin, PhD, P.Eng.
Currently a Project Manager for the Advanced Engineering at Lion Electric—I develop battery-related technologies. For my PhD, I researched the data-driven control of dynamical systems, with a focus on electric and autonomous vehicles. I work at the intersection of engineering product development, systems & control, and machine learning.
