I received both of my BEng degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and PhD degree in High Voltage Engineering from Cardiff University, UK, in 2012 and 2015, respectively. Following which, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Cardiff University until 2016. Between 2012 and 2016, I was working toward the characterisation of CF3I gas and its mixtures in a gas insulated line demonstrator. I have then worked at Western Power Distribution and moved across the business in the field of Primary System Design, Network Servicing and Innovation. 

I joined the University of Manchester in April 2017 as a Lecturer in High Voltage Engineering within the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. My research interests include the feasibility of replacing SF6 with an environmental friendly insulation medium in gas insulated equipment.
