Meet Our New Faculty Members
Dr. Roy's primary research interests are WBG based modular power electronics converter for pulsed power applications including military, medical, and other industrial processes; and power converters for grid integration of renewable resources. She is also interested in power converters for electric transportation including traction drives, DC-DC converters, fast chargers, and green hydrogen.
Dr. Zhou uses her interdisciplinary precision mechatronics research as a powerful tool for solving problems in various application areas, including semiconductor manufacturing equipment and robotics. With a systems focus, she develops novel and high-performance mechatronic solutions by exploiting the synergy between precision machine design, electric machines, and control algorithms.

Professors Chirag Gupta and Shubhra Pasayat, together with Professor Daniel Ludois, have received a $1.5 Million NSF ASCENT grant to utilize wide bandgap semiconductor materials to develop an ultra-efficient, high-voltage transistor.September 27, 2023
Over a hundred years ago, the English economist William Stanley Jevons keenly observed that technological advances that increase energy efficiency leads to further increased energy consumption and not the other way around, backed by impeccable data. In this talk, Prof. Giri will review Jevons' observations and link it to present observations.September 26, 2023
