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 the co-author of 140+ research papers (list of publications and Research Gate) in peer-reviewed top class international journals and conferences and 60+ technical reports. I am also the co-inventor of one patent filed by Psymetrix Ltd (now part of GE).
Interested in Smart Grids? Here is a short video showing how the electricity industry is taking the first steps.
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)
