I hold a BScEng (2009, first class honours) in electrical engineering from the University of Cape Town and an MScEng (2012, cum laude) in electrical engineering from the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa. Previous to my coming to Oxford I was employed by the Namibian power utility, NamPower since 2010 as assistant engineer. My MScEng research focused on the evaluation of the performance of high temperature vulcanized silicone rubber (HTV-SR) insulators with different creepage lengths when energized under AC and bipolar DC in natural pollution conditions; whereas my BScEng investigated the impact of grid-integration of wind power on the Namibian power network.
I joined the Energy and Power Group (EPG) to read for my Doctor of Philosophy, D.Phil/PhD - the emphasis of which is in line with the research I conducted during my undergraduate studies. The current research therefore continues to focus on the concept of active power networks in the presence of renewable energy resources.
