    Personal profile


    Dr Faramehr received PhD in Electrical Engineering in advanced wide bandgap technologies for next generation of power electronic applications in 2015. Thereafter, he worked as post-doctoral researcher on developing world's 1st gallium nitride current sensors at Swansea University. In 2019, Soroush joined academics of Institute for Future Transport and Cities with focus on power semiconductors research.

    He has 10-year experience in world-class power electronic R&D with a strong track record in publishing in leading international peer-reviewed journals, supervising students and writing research bids. Currently, he is PI at Coventry University for Innovate UK GaNTT  and CoI on EPSRC GaN SPICe projects. He was PI on Innovate UK Cygnus, EPSRC IAA, CoI on EPSRC CS Hub feasibility study projects and Entrepreneurial Lead on ICURe GaN Magnetic Sensors.

    Research Interests

    His research interest lies in more efficient compound semiconductor electronic devices driven by automotive, space, aerospace, renewables and industrial electronics sectors to leave less carbon footprint on the environment. They include (ultra)-wide bandgap power semiconductor devices, magnetic sensors and vertical field effect transistors.
