Dr Antoniou’s research aims to increase the energy efficiency and improve the reliability of high voltage power semiconductor devices, key electronic components used in power electronic systems. Power semiconductor devices are the key element for delivering and controlling power efficiently and reliably to electronics and electromechanical systems. Given the current requirements for integration of renewable power sources into the grid, the improvement in efficiency of power devices is not just a pursuit but also a necessity in the global energy delivery and use.
Her work has been published in the leading international journals in the area of power semiconductor devices and was presented at the major international conferences in the field. Active collaborations with industrial partners include ABB, Switzerland, IMS, Germany, Cambridge Semiconductor, UK, and XFAB, Germany-Malaysia.
