Professor Suleiman Sharkh obtained his BEng and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southampton in 1990 and 1994, respectively. He is the Head of the Mechatronics Research Group at the University of Southampton, and the Deputy Director of the Southampton EPSRC Energy Storage and its Applications CDT. His main research interests are in the areas of electric machines and power electronics and their applications in transport, renewable energy and microgrids. He has published over 160 papers, supervised 20 PhD students to completion and currently supervises 10 PhD students. His inventions and research, funded by industry, EPSRC and Innovate UK, have contributed to the development of several commercial products: rim driven thrusters ; direct drive tidal turbine generators; submersible motors; high speed PM machines for electric turbo compounding and gas compressors; and grid connected inverters. He was the winner of The Engineer Energy Innovation and Technology Award 2008 for his work on novel rim driven marine thrusters and turbine generators.
