Personal profile

Academic Biography

I received the PhD degree in control of power electronic converters from the school of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K, in 2012. In August 2017, I joined Teesside University as a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Electrical Engineering and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2019. Prior to my current position, I worked as a Research Associate in the School of Engineering, University of Newcastle (2016-2017) in a new topology of switch reluctance machine for a hybrid electric vehicle (48V Town & Country Hybrid Powertrain (TC48), and still Guest member of staff at school of Engineering, Newcastle University. 

My research interests lie in a range of multidisciplinary areas including Battery characterisations and control, Power electronic converters design and control, smart grids, Renewable energy generations modelling, control and optimizations, Fault monitoring and detection, Fuzzy logic and Artificial intelligence. My goal is to translate these into scalable and practical solutions to emerging challenges in energy systems such as renewable energy, battery system, intelligent on-chip power modular, energy informatics and management. I am broadly interested in the AIs algorithms in energy management and advanced control methods of power applications; most recently on batteries state estimation, monitoring, and control. Moreover, I am interested in the reliability of power electronic converters based on emerging Wide-band gap (WBG) devices using intelligence techniques and the challenges that arise when power converters are connected to the power application systems (eg. EV applications, renewable energy interface with the grid, storage system).
