Biography:

Sudip K. Mazumder received his Ph.D. degree from Virginia Tech in 2001. He
is a Professor and the Director of Laboratory for Energy and
Switching-Electronics Systems in the Department of Electrical and Computer
Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He also serves as
the President of the small business NextWatt LLC. He has over 25 years of
professional experience and has held R&D and design positions in leading
industrial organizations and has served as a Technical Consultant for
several industries.

His current areas of interests are switching-sequence and
switching-transition based control of power-electronics systems and
interactive-power networks; power electronics for renewable energy,
micro/smart grids, energy storage; wide-bandgap (GaN/SiC) power
electronics; and optically-triggered wide-bandgap power semiconductor
devices.

His research has attracted about 50 sponsored-research projects from
leading federal agencies and industries and yielded over 215 peer-reviewed
publications in prestigious tier-one international journals and
conferences, 11 patents, 10 book chapters and 1 book, and about 100
invited/plenary/keynote lectures and presentations. He has guided/guiding
13 post-doctoral researchers and 16 Ph.D. and 11 M.S. students.

He is the recipient of University of Illinois at Chicago’s Inventor of the
Year Award (2014), University of Illinois’ University Scholar Award –
university’s highest award (2013), IEEE International Future Energy
Challenge Award (2005), ONR Young Investigator Award (2005), NSF CAREER
Award (2003), and IEEE PELS Transaction Prize Paper Award (2002).

In 2016, he was elevated to the rank of an IEEE Fellow and he was elected
to serve as a Distinguished Lecturer for IEEE PELS beginning in 2016. He
is also the Editor-at-Large for IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics
(effective 2019). Currently, he also serves as the Chair for IEEE PELS
Technical Committee on Sustainable Energy Systems. He is the Chair for
IEEE PEDG’21, the TPC Chair for IEEE DEAS’19, and the Tutorial Chair for
ECCE’19. He is an AdCom Member for IEEE Power Electronics Society.
