Biography

Dr. Apel Mahmud received his PhD in Electrical Engineering with the best thesis award from the University of New South Wales, Australia in December 2012 and a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering from RUET in 2008 with the University Gold Medal. Currently, he is working as an Associate Professor in Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University Newcastle. Prior to joining Northumbria, he worked as a Senior Lecturer and Lecturer in Electrical & Renewable Energy Engineering at Deakin University, Australia. He also worked as a Lecturer in Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Swinburne University of Technology, a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, and a research publication fellow at the University of New South Wales.

He has been successful in obtaining five externally funded projects, which attracted more than AUD12.6 million in total as listed below:
