Short biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in Smart Power Systems Engineering within the School of Science Engineering and Information Technology at Federation University Australia (FedUni Australia). Prior to join FedUni Australia, I have worked with the University of Manchester, the University of Queensland, and Central Queensland University.

I have experience working at, and consulting with, DNOs and TSOs on individual projects and collaborative work on a large number of projects - primarily on the dynamic impact of integrating new technologies and power electronics into large systems. I am an active member of the IEEE and CIGRE and regularly review papers for conferences and leading academic journals. I have more than 50 international publications and have spoken at the leading power system conferences around the world.
