Research summary

I am a member of the Electrical Energy Management Research Group and the Digital Health Engineering Group. I am interested in exploiting new energy sources and the efficient management of power from these sources. My research lies at the interface of power electronics, microelectronics, and radiofrequency engineering. Current projects include power electronics using emerging GaN and SiC power devices, where high-speed active gate driving of these has been shown to increase efficiency and reduce electromagnetic emissions (EMI). Micro-renewables and wireless power transfer to medical sensors present interesting challenges for power electronics due to the variability in the power and in ...

I enjoy interdisciplinary projects involving power, micro, and radio-frequency electronic design, alongside power mechanical design, manufacturing, software and commercialisation. I favour a pragmatic approach to supporting technological innovation in small and medium enterprises and have spent time as a consultant with Scientific Instruments Research Association, working with companies in deprived areas of the London Thames Gateway. I originated technology used by Seamless Display Ltd and Sensor Driven Ltd, which gave me the opportunity to work with design and manufacturing companies in the UK, US, and China. At Imperial College London, I carried out research involving power engineering applied to micro-technology ...
