"The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday…"

For students

I invite you to the subjects section, where you will find information and materials about my classes. I encourage you to use e-mail (down below or via SKOS) as a way to ask questions as well. Of course, if you prefer to see me in person, you should not hesitate. However, I find that in practice I can easily respond quite quickly to e-mail, and it is a very convenient method of communication.

My statement:

The objectives of my professional life have been the inquiry and advancement of knowledge. I always wanted to be a patient educator and tenacious researcher.

Research interests:

  • Power ectronics
  • DC/AC inverters and DC/DC converter
  • Modeling and Controls of Power Converters
  • Electric drive control
  • Modeling of drive systems
  • Teaching methods and engineering education


    I expect laboratory lab reports. Additionally, I check knowledge through a written test.

    Academic Honesty

    You can collaborate with others students in the class on homework/project, but only to the extent needed to understand the problem statement, and to decide on a solution. However, the work that you turn in must be your own.
