Committee Biographies

Trevor O. Jones (NAE), Chair is founder, chairman, and chief executive officer (CEO) of ElectroSonics Medical, Inc. Before that, he was founder, chairman, and CEO of Biomec, Incorporated, a biomedical device company. He was formerly chairman of the board of Echlin, Incorporated, a supplier of automotive components, primarily to the aftermarket. Dr. Jones is also chairman and CEO of the International Development Corporation, a private management consulting company that advises automotive supplier companies on strategy and technology. He was chair, president, and CEO (retired) of Libbey-Owens-Ford Company, a large manufacturer of glass for automotive and construction applications. Previously, he served as vice president of engineering in the Automotive Worldwide Sector of TRW, Incorporated, and as group vice president, Transportation Electronics Group. Before joining TRW, he was employed by General Motors (GM) in many aerospace and automotive executive positions, including director of GM Proving Grounds; of the Delco Electronics Division, Automotive Electronic, and Safety Systems; and director of the GM Advanced Product Engineering Group. Dr. Jones is a life fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and has been cited for leadership in the application of electronics to the automobile. He is also a fellow of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), a fellow of the British Institution of Electrical Engineers, a fellow of the Engineering Society of Detroit, a registered professional engineer in Wisconsin, and a chartered engineer in the United Kingdom. He holds many patents and has lectured and written on automotive safety and electronics. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and a former commissioner of the National Research Council (NRC) Commission on Engineering and Technical Systems. Dr. Jones has served on several other NRC study committees, including the Committee for a Strategic Transportation Research Study on Highway Safety. He chaired the NAE Steering Committee on the Impact of Products Liability Law on Innovation and the Committee on Review of the Research Program of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles for six reviews. He holds a higher national certificate in electrical engineering from Aston Technical College and an ordinary national certificate in mechanical engineering from Liverpool Technical College. Cleveland State University awarded Dr. Jones an honorary doctorate of science and cited him for contributions in the development of fuel cells and biomedical devices.


Thomas W. Asmus (NAE) is a retired senior research executive of DaimlerChrysler Corporation. He has also held positions at Mead Corporation, as an adjunct faculty member of mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan, and as a professor of physical chemistry at the University of Guadalajara, in Mexico. He has more than 30 years of experience and has played a leadership role in nearly all aspects of internal combustion engine and fuels research and development, focusing mainly on fuel consumption and exhaust emissions reduction. His entry into the field was initially based on his background in combustion and emissions formation mechanisms for both gasoline and diesel engines, but with time and circumstances his activities expanded to include gas exchange processes, controls, lubrication, many types of fault diagnoses, and heat management. New-concept analysis has become routine for Dr. Asmus. Besides having been a member of the NAE, he is a fellow of the SAE and was a recipient of the Soichiro Honda Lecture Award recipient in 1999. He has a B.S. in paper science and engineering from Western Michigan University and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Western Michigan University.


Rodica Baranescu (NAE) is a professor in the College of Engineering, Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago. Before that, she was manager of the fuels, lubricants, and engine group of the International Truck and Engine Corporation, at Melrose Park, Illinois. She is an internationally sought after public speaker on technical issues related to mobility technology, environmental control, fuels, and energy. She has extensive expertise in diesel engine technology and was elected to the NAE in 2001 for research leading to effective and environmentally sensitive diesel and alternative-fuel engines
