Research Interests

My research focuses on the control and optimization of power networks. In particular, I am interested in the control, analysis, and optimization of microgrids and hybrid AC/DC networks. A considerable focus of my work has been on control design for power converters in these settings, aiming to stabilize the network while achieving various other control objectives. Other interests include: integration of new technology into distribution networks, hosting capacity of electrical networks, power quality, and computer modelling of electrical power systems.
