About Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Future Transportation

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Future Transportation

Chris Hagen, Director, Energy Systems Lab; Associate Professor, Energy Systems Engineering, OSU-Cascades

Technologies developed in the Energy Systems Lab at OSU-Cascades may shape how people and goods are transported in the future.

Join professor and researcher Chris Hagen for a discussion about innovations in energy storage and engine technology that are changing how personal and transport vehicles are powered. He will also explore regulatory and economic factors that play a role in forecasting future transportation technologies.

Hagen's research looks at energy conversion, novel transportation fuels, and the development of sensors for harsh environments. He developed a vehicle-based natural gas refueling system that led to the creation of a Bend-based company, OnBoard Dynamics. He launched a second company, Rogue Approach, which is advancing technology developed in the Energy Systems Lab that enables drones to fly farther and for longer periods of time.

Hagen was recognized in 2017 by the Society of Automotive Engineers as one of the nation’s top young engineering educators.
