Research summary

I am leading the Center for Device Thermography and Reliability (CDTR), a research centre focusing on improving the thermal management, electrical performance and reliability of novel devices, circuits and packaging. Since 2001 we have been developing and applying new techniques for temperature, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity and traps analysis, especially for microwave and power electronic semiconductor devices, made of wide bandgap materials, such as GaN, SiC and diamond. Our team of about 20 international researchers and PhD students works with industry and academia from across the globe to develop the next generation of technology for communications, microwave and power electronics ...
