Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am currently Professor of High Voltage Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. I gained a BSc and PhD from the University of Glasgow and also hold a BD degree from the University of Aberdeen. My research interests lie in the areas of high voltage engineering focusing on electrical condition monitoring, insulation diagnostics, HV asset management, data analytics and communication systems. I am also Co-academic lead for the Asset Management theme at Strathclyde's Power Network Demonstration Centre (PNDC). Recently funded research projects have focussed on power transformers, power cables, HVDC systems, GIS systems, electrical diagnostic measurements, power quality in rail systems and data analytics. My professional affiliations are CEng, MIET and MIEEE. I have previously served as an elected AdCom Member of the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS), held the position of IEEE DEIS Secretary between 2012-2017 and was Vice-President (Technical) of the IEEE DEIS Society for 2018 and 2019  I am currently serving as Vice-President (Administration) of the IEEE DEIS Society for 2020.
