Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering
Why did you choose graduate school at IUPUI?
I think choosing a graduate school was one of the most important decisions in my life, especially as an international student who is studying far away from home. I chose graduate school at IUPUI as it is one of the top international world ranking universities. I wanted to work with distinguished professors in electrical engineering on the research topics that fulfill my own professional goals. I think IUPUI is unique especially when it comes to research diversity and a collaborative environment. I get to work with different research groups with different backgrounds which has given me a unique research experience.
What has been your favorite academic accomplishment since you’ve been here?
Publishing our research work at IUPUI in the top flagship conferences, the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) 2023. This is the world premiere forum in circuits and systems, so we were competing with others from all over the world and from industry and academia. Our work at IUPUI in the paper entitled “Employment of Graphene Nanomaterial in Optimizing Thermal Responses in IGBT Devices” got accepted for publication. The percentage of acceptance was less than 20% of the submitted papers from all over the world.
What do you enjoy most about life in Indianapolis?
Indianapolis feels like home for me. I enjoy walking on campus and downtown area, and the facilities are impressive, especially the IU Natatorium and library. Living downtown is an amazing experience - everything is close by and within walking distance.
Please provide some details about your work/research as a graduate student and/or any activities you are involved in.
My current research interests focus on power electronics, isolated DC-DC power supplies especially resonant LLC converters, electric machines, and high-power density devices. I have been an instructor for the electric circuit theory course, and I am involved in multiple projects funded by industry and the US. government.
