Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Senior Lecturer at the electronic & electrical engineering department and member of the WECC (Wind Energy and Control Group) from University of Strathclyde.

Over the course of my academic career, I have focused my research efforts in the improvement of production, transmission and distribution of electric energy by integrating power electronics into the power systems, with a strong reliance on prototype and digital control development to validate the proposed solutions. I have worked with internationally recognized research groups in power electronics/systems such as the Alpha Laboratory of Power Electronics at the University of British Columbia, Canada (2014-2016), The Wind Energy & Control Centre at the University of Strathclyde, UK (2016-present), and the PGIIE, Mexico (2013). Additionally, I have carried out research,prototype development and Consultancy with industrial partners such as Prolec-General Electric, Mexico (2013), Alpha Technologies LTD, Canada (2015), and Offshore Renewable Energy CATAPULT, UK, (2018) and Auto Motive Power, Inc (2021).

I am a Senior Member of the IEEE (SMIEEE) and Member of the Mexican National Investigator System (SNI-I).
