    Dr Wissam Jamal received his B.Eng. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Swansea University in 1996. He then readmitted to the same university to pursue his higher education in Power Electronics. He completed his PhD in 2002 and thesis submitted was titled “Application of Modern Control Techniques in AC Speed Drives”. In January 2000, he became a senior researcher in the School of Engineering at Swansea University, where he worked on various research and industrial projects related to power electronics applications. From February 2002 to November 2004, he joined the Power Electronics Design Centre (PEDC) at Swansea University as a technical manager, leading the centre’s application and design group. He took sole responsibility for the design of new power electronics products in liaison with many industrial partners. From December 2004 to November 2007 he worked for Eaton Corporation in the UK as a lead design engineer, where he was responsible for the design of new controller circuits for twin-pilot electrohydraulic valve system. He was also responsible for conducting type testing on industrial CAN Joystick controllers to acquire product CE marking. From September 2010 to March 2015, he worked as an external consultant on several government funded academic projects at King Fahd University for Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) covering projects on power quality mitigation strategies and Supercaps assisted STATCOM. In September 2020, he joined Coventry University as Assistant Professor in Power Electronics, Machines and Drives. He has recently become a senior member of IEEE.
