I am a Senior Lecturer in Electric Vehicles. I have been working at Oxford Brookes University since 2017. My previous work experience includes Research fellow in the future of Transport, Research Assistant, Lab Demonstrator and Associate Lecturer. I am an active member of the Electronics and Instrumentation Group and the High Voltage and Energy Storage Group. My background is in Biomedical Science and Electronic and Communication Engineering.

Teaching and supervision


Modules taught

I am module leader for the following modules: 

  • Electrical Machines and Drives
  • Electrical Power Systems
  • Electric Vehicles

I also teach half of Electric Powertrain Systems

My teaching covers undergraduate year 2 modules and postgraduate modules. In addition, my teaching responsibilities include supervising students during their undergraduate and postgraduate projects. 


My research interests include Biomedical Engineering, Autonomous Vehicle Navigation Systems, Electric Powertrain control systems, Battery management systems, and Machine Learning (Adaptive Neural Networks). My current research projects include roadsign and lane marking recognition systems, bi-directional DC-DC converter control systems and Medical monitoring systems. My research involves integrating neural networks into systems for monitoring or detection purposes. This is a continuation of my PhD research which involved developing a neural network algorithm for detecting fatigue and distraction for drivers.
