Personal profile


Dr Faramehr received PhD in Electrical Engineering in advanced wide bandgap technology for future generation of high power density applications in 2015. Thereafter, he worked as post-doctoral researcher on design, fabrication and characterisation of world's 1st gallium nitride current transducers 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 electronics 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 two Innovate UK projects and CoI on recenlty funded £1M EPSRC project. He was PI on EPSRC IAA, CoI on EPSRC CS Hub feasibility study projects and Entrepreneurial Lead for ICURe Programme - Commercialising University Research.

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 footprint on the environment. They include wide bandgap power semiconductor devices, wide bandgap current transducers, ultra-wide bandgap materials and vertical field effect transistors.
