I joined Aston University in Jan 2010 into Engineering and Applied Science. I currently work in the Power Systems and Power Electronic Group.
Prior to joining Aston University, I had obtained over 10 years experience in industry working at both Rolls Royce and Eon as an Engineer. I also have 3 years academic experience having held a Daphne Jackson Fellowship at Sheffield University and an RA position at Cambridge University.
I primarily lecture on the Foundation degree program at Aston on the EPE and PSM courses
I am module leader for a new BEng/MEng undergraduate course on Power System which started in 2014
I’m primarily interested in the role of power electronics as it relates to the electricity grid. In particular, I’m interested in how the smart grid develops and the technical challenges underlying the security of supply around this. My interests also include the energy storage issues relating to battery systems on the grid including those in electric vehicles and their potential to provide frequency response and voltage support. Key areas of interest within the research group are in the stability and protection of power systems, energy utilisation and efficiency, power electronic converters and devices, and the modelling and simulation of power electronic systems.
