June 2024



Mahima Gupta will be joining the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) as an Assistant Professor this month. She received her Ph.D. and M.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison), Madison, WI, in 2019 and 2015 respectively, where she was affiliated with the Wisconsin Electric Machine and Power Electronics Consortium (WEMPEC) as a graduate student. Prior to joining UW-Madison, she was an Assistant Professor at Portland State University (PSU), Portland, OR. From 2019-2020, she was a part of the Research and Advanced Engineering group with Ford Motor Company, a WEMPEC sponsor, where she worked on next-generation electrified powertrains. Her research work is supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the IEEE Foundation.

Her research explores innovative approaches to meet the challenges of next-generation power electronics conversions & controls, modular multilevel power converters, motor drive systems, and electromagnetic noise due to fast switching power semiconductor devices. She is excited about re-joining WEMPEC!
