My research interests include AC and DC microgrids, the distributed energy resources connected to those microgrids, and the power electronic converter systems that make such integration possible. At the system level, I am interested in DC microgrid architectures and control strategies. At the integration level, I am interested in the development of high density power converters, through both the use of wide bandgap semiconductor devices and advanced converter topologies. Through this research, I hope to aid advancement of grid efficiency and stability, DC distribution systems, and renewable energy integration.
