Shawn Salisbury

Vehicle Testing Engineer

Research Areas:


Shawn Salisbury works in the INL’s Energy Storage and Transportation Systems department as a vehicle testing engineer. Shawn comes to INL from Ft. Collins, Colo., where he recently earned his master’s in mechanical engineering at Colorado State University. As a graduate student, Shawn led CSU's ECOCar team to design, build, and test a full-size highway capable plug-in hybrid fuel cell vehicle. He and his teammates were highly recruited by major auto companies because of their ECOCar experience. Shawn's academic and practical experience and prior INL internship will allow him to make immediate contributions to INL's vehicle and battery testing work.
