Ph.D. Electrical Engineering, Missouri University of Science and Technology, 2004

Research Interests:

He received the M.S. and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla in 2001 and 2004, respectively. While at the University of Missouri-Rolla he received both DOE-GAANN and NSF-IGERT Fellowships. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Florida State University in August 2007 as an Assistant Professor, where he is associated with the Center for Advanced Power Systems.

His research interests include modeling, control and design of electrical machines, and development and analysis of power electronic topologies for power system applications. He has published several papers in IEEE Transactions related to modeling and control of switched reluctance machines and additionally received a IEEE Prize Paper award in 2006 from the Industry Applications Society for work in this area.

He is a reviewer for Transactions on Energy Conversion, Transactions on Power Electronics, Transaction on Industry Applications, Transactions on Industrial Electronics and Transactions on Vehicular Technology. He is a Member of IEEE and currently serves as the Secretary of IEEE Tallahassee Section.
