I got my Diploma degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 2013.

Since April 2014, I have been working as a PhD student under the EPSRC funded project, Energy Storage for Low Carbon Grid, looking at the applications of power electronics in Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). My work focuses on a BESS using a Modular Multilevel Converter (MMC). The MMC can provide direct DC to AC conversion for interfacing the electrochemical cells to the grid, while enabling individual control of each single cell. By developing appropriate control methodologies and cell monitoring techniques using the MMC, it is possible to create a robust system that can cope with variations in individual cell characteristics (such as cell  capacity or State of Charge) that tend to limit the performance of conventional  BESS.
