Personal profile

Research interests

My current research interests are investigating reliability and efficiency optimization of energy conversion in high voltage power electronics converters used in applications such as HVDC and FACTS power electronics in smart grids, electric vehicles drive-trains and more-electric-aircrafts power distribution. To this end, and in-line with my academic and industrial experience, I am currently seeking to explore prospective converter topologies which can best employ the advantages offered by recently emerged wide bandgap power semiconductor devices.
