I am a Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath. From January 2021 I have been offered an association with Imperial College London as Honorary Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

My research focuses on the fundamental theories for the dynamic behaviour of converter-dominated grids, to illuminate the pathway for the development of new converter technologies and new grid operations to enable future fully renewable power systemsI founded Simplus Technology Co. Ltd. which is a startup focusing on integrated CAD tools for power systems and power electronics, including grid stability analytics, real-time simulation, rapid control prototyping, and real-time operating systems.
