Dr. Khaled W. Shahwan

Fellow AIAA, Innovation & Advanced Development Engineering, Chrysler Technology Center

FCA US

Dr. Khaled W. Shahwan has been at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Chrysler Technology Center since 1999 and is currently a Technology Lead/Specialist in the Advanced Development Engineering organization for lightweight plastics and carbon composites, advanced material technologies, and modeling and predictive methodologies. Dr. Shahwan has worked extensively in various other areas of advanced vehicle technologies and safety developments, and since 2002 on active safety and early autonomy technologies (ADAS). Khaled has chaired several industry-government (US-DoE) collaborative (pre-competitive) joint activities under umbrella organizations such as the Automotive Composites Consortium (ACC)/USCAR/USAMP and USDRIVE. Dr. Shahwan has been involved in various vehicle development programs, advanced virtual methods, safety regulations, and future technology roadmaps.

Over a 14-year period Khaled conceived and was the lead architect of several large projects within the ACC focused on advanced development of novel methods to model and predict the dynamic crush of carbon fiber composites. Under Dr. Shahwan's leadership such projects resulted in numerous published innovations, and new fundamental understandings, that culminated in a state-of-the-art validation activity, which eventually evolved into the current VMM project. 

Earlier in his 22-year career Dr. Shahwan worked for few years at Ford Research Labs. and Advanced Vehicle Engineering. Khaled is on the Editorial Board of several international journals (JEM '04-'14, IJVS, IJVD, and IJAutoC). Elected as an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Dr. Shahwan has over 40 peer-reviewed publications, over 50 corporate and industry-government collaboration reports. Khaled is a lead instructor at two SAE Engineering Academies on lightweighting and composites, and serves on the advisory board of the College of Engineering at San Francisco State University. Dr. Shahwan is a member of the Technology Advisory Council of the Center for Automotive Research (CAR). Khaled has received several industry awards and recognitions.

Dr. Shahwan holds a PhD and MS in Aerospace Engineering, MS in Civil and Environmental (structural) Engineering, all three from the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and a BS in Civil Engineering from SFSU.
