Akshay has always had a practical approach to engineering. His quest for Electric Vehicles began in 2008 when he developed a unique dashboard electric scooters that rewards users when they drive electric. In his Masters at University of Toronto he developed a unique way of measuring impedance characteristics of Lithium-ion batteries on-board vehicles that allow for early prediction of battery failures.

He was a core  member of the Battery Hardware and Firmware team at Tesla, where he worked on the Model S refresh, Model X and Model 3 vehicles. He is now the Director at MakerMax Inc., that is enabling an ecosystem for mass EV adoption by creating products such as battery analyzers, characterizers and battery management platforms that enable the industry to create high performance and safe Electric Vehicles. He also runs popular online workshops on Battery Technology to reskill professionals and students in this field.
