I studied Electronic Engineering at the University of Sheffield from 1982 - 1985, an graduated with a 1st BEng(Hons) before moving to Liverpool University to study my PhD. I graduated from Liverpool University in 1989 with a PhD in Automatic Weld Penetration Control, having developed a vision system and power electronics capable of controlling the penetration of a TIG welding arc through the workpiece.
After graduating with a PhD, I joined the University of Sheffield as a member of academic staff in the Electrical Machines and Drives (EMD) Group where I have been working to date, having been promoted to Professor in 2013.
My research interests include Power electronics and Energy storage, and currently, through CREESA, we operate the largest grid connected lithium titanate electrical energy storage system in te UK.
