Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a core researcher within the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre for Electrical Power Systems, within the Institute for Energy and Environment.

I am interested in electrical power systems, in particular the interdependent areas of protection and architecture design, including the control and application of power electronics. My current research has focussed on aero-electrical applications, for both more-electric and hybrid propulsion aircraft.  However, solutions and concepts developed through my research are transferable to a range of land-based and marine electrical applications.

Areas of particular interest:

  • Electrical power systems for hybrid electric propulsion for future aircraft: architectures and protection system design.  
  • Impact of structural materials (e.g. composites) on electrical power system design
  • Superconducting power systems.
  • Microgrids (aerospace, land and marine applications)
