I obtained my PhD degree in Power Electronics from Sussex University in 2004 then joined Swansea University as a research officer.  I’m currently a Lecturer in Power Electronics in the College of Engineering at Swansea University.

My current research interests are in: Power electronics converters and controls for solar and wave power conversion systems, Electrical machine control and power systems. I have also published over 50 scientific papers in various international journals and conferences in the area of power electronics and power system.
