I joined University of Leicester in 2015 before which I took different positions as power electronics engineer and research associate. I am ensusiatic in power electronics and power components and am an active researcher with a strong track record in the power semiconductor reliability prognosis and health management. I won the Newcastle University Innovator of the Year Award (2013) for developing the intelligent gate driver which is the world’s first of its kind in power electronics that enable real-time condition monitoring using failure precursors and life consumption prediction. I also won the Henry Lester Trust Award (2010 2017) for developing lifetime estimator for semiconductor power modules and active gate drivers respectively. I am currently the Editor of IET Power Electronics Journal and Associate Editor of Proceedings of the Royal Society A.
