Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Innovator Award

Wolfram technologies have long been a major force in many areas of industry and research. Leaders in many top organizations and institutions have played a major role in using computational intelligence and pushing the boundaries of how the Wolfram technology stack is leveraged for innovation across fields and disciplines.

We recognize these deserving recipients with the Wolfram Innovator Award, which is awarded at the Wolfram Technology Conferences around the world.


Alexandre Leite

Engineering Director & Mechatronics, Austral Dynamics

Areas: Control Engineering, Engineering, System Modeling

Alexandre Leite is a case of a PhD who became an entrepreneur. He currently holds a master’s and PhD in engineering and space technologies from Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais and a degree in technology in automation from Instituto Federal Fluminense. He is experienced in the design of feasible mechatronic systems for several industry sectors and proportional–integral–derivative (PID) controllers.

He is a cofounder of Austral Dynamics, which started in 2017 as a spinoff of MWF Services. Austral developed its own hardware-in-the-loop platform called ASTURIAN. This technology allows engineers to use Functional Mock-up Unit (FMU) models generated by Wolfram System Modeler as real-time simulation mock-ups. Some applications are in agriculture machinery and commercial/heavy-duty vehicles. Currently, Austral is developing many business and technological initiatives in the field of electric powertrains for heavy vehicles.
