Seen as one of the leading independent experts in the EV and energy storage battery space, Dr. Veronika Wright participates in numerous speaking events each year as a keynote speaker, round table participant, or technology information provider.  She often helps companies with product launches, training, and has tremendous expertise in making complicated topics easy to understand.  Being fluent in both English and German, her requests span across the US and Europe. 

Industry Experience

After finishing my PhD in Technical Physics at Graz University of Technology I joined AVL List GmbH in Graz, Austria for almost four years. Starting as a simulation engineer of lithium-ion batteries, I was involved in methodology development, international customer projects, cooperation with universities as well as supervising students, from battery cell to module to pack applications.

I built up my expertise in:

  • Battery thermal runaway and propagation simulation based on battery abuse testing; finite element and CFD simulation
  • Battery lifetime prediction based on battery cell testing; electro-chemical, half-empirical and data-driven models
  • Battery thermal management simulation, thermal concept studies, battery standards and regulations, virtual sensors and solid state batteries
