Cedric De Cauwer
Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Dr. Cedric De Cauwer obtained his Master’s Degree in Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 2011, with a specialization in vehicle and transport technology. He immediately joined the MOBI research group to work on electric and hybrid vehicle technology. Since 2013, Cedric’s PhD research was funded by an IWT scholarship and focused on the prediction of energy consumption and driving range of electric vehicles, and energyefficient routing. He obtained his PhD in 2017 and has since continued to apply his expertise in national and international projects. He is currently focused on the integration of mobility solutions (electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles) into the electricity grid (charging infrastructure, vehicle-to-grid).
