Kawsar Ali received the B. Tech. degree from National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, India in 2011 and the PhD degree from National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore in 2018, both in electrical engineering. His doctoral dissertation was on ‘high performance three-phase ac/dc converters for data centers’.
From 2011 to 2014, prior to joining NUS as a PhD student, he was with the Indian Oil Corporation Limited, India, where he worked as an Operations Officer. He joined the Engineering Science Department of the University of Oxford in 2018 as a post-doctoral research associate, where he works on the power electronics system design aspects of ultra-low power energy harvesting systems.
Kawsar's research interests include:
- Power electronics systems for ultra-low power energy harvesters
- Resonant power converters and soft-switching of power electronic devices
- Application of wide bandgap devices (SiC,GaN)
- Point-of-load (PoL) converters
