Overview

I am part-time Professor of Smart Grids at The University of Manchester, UK and Electronic Engineering and Professor of Smart Grids and Power Systems at The University of Melbourne, Australia. From 2007 to 2010 I was a Research Fellow in Energy Systems with the Institute for Energy Systems in the School of Engineering at The University of Edinburgh, UK. I am an IEEE PES Distinguished Lecturer since 2015 an IEEE Senior Member since 2012. In 2010 I also undertook an industrial secondment with the Edinburgh-based company Psymetrix Ltd. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering gained at UNI (Peru), and a Research MSc and a PhD in Electrical Power Engineering, both gained at UNESP Ilha Solteira (Brazil). I am co-author of more than 130 research papers (list of publications and Research Gate) in peer-reviewed top ranked journals and top class international conference and more than 50 technical reports. I am also co-inventor of one patent filed by Psymetrix Ltd. I am also Visiting Professor at UNICAMP (Brazil) since 2014.

Research Interests

Within the 'big area' of Flexible Low-Carbon Distribution Networks (medium and low voltage) the following are my main research interests:

  • Integration of Distributed Low-Carbon Technologies (wind, photovoltaics, electric vehicles, storage, demand side management)

  • Active Network Management (Smart Grids)

  • Optimisation of Distribution Networks (operation and planning)

  • Future Distribution Network Management Systems

  • Real-Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) Hardware-in-the-Loop Studies

Want to learn more? These webinars, IEEE Smart Grid Webinar 1 (Q&A), IEEE Smart Grid Webinar 2, and IEEE PES Webinar, and this IEEE Smart Grid Newsletter will give you an idea of our world-class research in future distribution networks (Smart Grids).
