Don Hillebrand is the director of Argonne's Center for Transportation Research, leading a team of engineers and physicists actively seeking to solve transportation problems related to the nation's reliance on imported energy.

Jeffrey Chamberlain is the leader of the laboratory-wide Energy Storage Initiative at Argonne National Laboratory, which is developing solutions for both electric cars and the power grid.

Don Hillebrand
Don came to Argonne from DaimlerChrysler A.G. in Stuttgart, Germany where he worked as the manager of Research and Technology Policy in the DaimlerChrysler research labs. He was responsible for environment, energy and research policy with the European Commission on Research. Don worked two years in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy as a Senior Policy Advisor for Transportation to the Executive Office of the President. Previously, he spent 20 years as a product engineer with Chrysler Motors working on a range of advanced technology programs that resulted in patents, publications, and commercial products on the road.

Jeffrey Chamberlain
Jeffrey also has an active role in Argonne's lithium-air battery development initiative. Prior to joining Argonne, Dr. Chamberlain performed industrial research at several companies, notably Cabot Microelectronics, Nalco, and Dow, focusing his work on the chemistry at the interface between suspended metal-oxide particles and their surrounding solutions. Products developed from Jeff's work in industry have been applied in semiconductor processing, coatings manufacture, and mineral processing. Dr. Chamberlain studied vacuum-based surface chemistry at the Georgia Institute of Technology and received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry.
