Research interests

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 some cases the ultra low power levels. We have developed sensor-driven electronics, nanopower computing circuits, and power electronics with sub-µW loss. 

I have worked on many collaborations with industry and other universities and am keen to continue these and to establish new links.
