Mohamed Takkoush originates from Lebanon where he received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. In 2018, Mohamed relocated to Sweden to further hone his engineering skills and earn his master’s degree in automotive engineering from Chalmers University of Technology with a focus on vehicle dynamics and active safety.

He completed his master thesis with Volvo Autonomous solutions in 2020 on the topic of model validation using reach set conformance. During his masters, Mohamed worked as a project assistant with Professor Mathias Lidberg at the Department of Vehicle Dynamics at Chalmers. After my graduation, he joined Fraunhofer Chalmers Center for 6 months to support the initiation of projects related to multibody and vehicle dynamics, where Mohamed was first exposed to the FMI standard used for model sharing.

Today, Mohamed works as a vehicle dynamics analyst at Volvo Autonomous solutions where he develops, validates and integrates vehicle models to support virtual development at Volvo Autonomous Solutions.
