Dr John Gow MEng PhD CEng MIET received an MEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering from Loughborough University in 1993, and a Ph.D in power electronics from the same institution in 1998. He subsequently continued research in the area of power conversion systems for building-integrated and large scale solar photovoltaic installations.Subsequent industrial opportunities in power electronics and embedded control design led to him acting as a senior design engineer developing hardware and software for high speed DSP and microcontroller based embedded control systems and power chains for inverters, industrial drives and uninterruptible power supplies.
He now works as Associate Professor of Electronic Engineering at De Montfort University with research and commercial interests in analog/digital electronics, power conversion, power electronics and embedded systems.
