Richard Smith is a research program coordinator with the Power Electronics and Electric Machinery Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s National Transportation Research Center. He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. He has worked at ORNL for 14 years in the areas of research coordination, project management, and strategic planning at the directorate, division, and program levels. Richard currently coordinates research and development activities with vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, NASA, NIST, DoD, and national laboratories in support of the Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Offices’ Advance Power Electronics and Electrical Machines program. From 2004 to 2007, he served on assignment at the DOE VTO collaborating and planning research activities among the national laboratories, industry and several government agencies and departments – NASA, NIST, DoD, DOC, EPA, and DOT. While supporting the VTO programs, Mr. Smith has had a major role in the preparation and follow-up of several congressionally mandated National Academy of Sciences reviews of VTO’s R&D programs and industry partnerships. From 2000 to 2004, he served as the technical assistant to the ORNL Associate Director for Energy and Engineering Sciences. Prior to working with ORNL, Mr. Smith was the project manager/design engineer for uranium processing and enrichment projects, nuclear power plant control system projects, vehicle assembly plant projects, and several manufacturing automation and optimization projects.
