Electric motor drives play a critical role in the growing market for electrification, as they are the largest consumer of electrical energy. Around 46% of the global electricity demand is from electric motors. There is an increasing demand for high-efficiency, high-performance, and low-cost electric motor drives for various applications in the transportation, industrial, commercial, and residential sectors. This also brings up the necessity for a sustainable supply chain.

My research focuses on developing next-generation electric motor drive technologies. I work on the design and development of novel electric motor technologies, power converter solutions, and control techniques to improve the performance and reduce the cost of electric motor drives. I also work on acoustic noise modeling and reduction in electric motor drives, which is vital in high power density applications, such as traction motor drives. My research will enable the use of high performance and efficient motor drive technologies in a wide variety of applications and will contribute more broadly to sustainability and energy efficiency.
