Excellence in Research Award
CPES would like to congratulate Rolando Burgos for his continued award-winning research. Dr. Burgos and his students work around-the-clock to provide ground-breaking research. We are happy, and honored, to have him as one of our senior faculty.
- Rolando Burgos has received eight IEEE best paper awards and the SAFRAN Group Industrial Prize for industrial collaboration.
- His work has helped advance the suppression, containment, and mitigation of electromagnetic interference emissions in wide-bandgap, semiconductor-based power converters, considered by many to be the main technical barrier hindering the widespread adoption of these devices by industry, especially in medium-voltage applications.
- In working with his Ph.D. students, Burgos primarily seeks to pose the right questions to help them unveil the fundamental problem at hand, striving to provide guidance throughout the research process and staying as involved as possible.
