Currently, I am based at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) as Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Power Engineering. I am the founder of the Real-Time Power and Control System (RPCS) Lab in the school of EECS, where its research activities are mainly focused on (vehicular, grid) energy storage management, energy management systems for DC/AC Microgrids and Intelligent control of SiC-based inverters. My other role is teaching core power engineering modules in undergraduate and postgraduate level.
I was a research fellow in the University of Warwick (2013-2015), and a research associate in the Newcastle University (2010-2013) where I have also acted as a Commercialisation Manager for a university spin-off company developing disruptive GaN-based optoelectronics for neuroscience research. I received my PhD (2010) and MSc (2004) in Electrical and Control Engineering from Newcastle University, UK. Prior to my academic career, I worked in the industry for 8 years in a variety of roles including senior software developer (2000-2003) at Sun Microsystems (acquired by Oracle in 2009), and software lead (1996-2000) at National Iranian Oil Company.
