Hi, I’m Dr. Ehab Bayoumi


Ehab H. E. Bayoumi received his BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in electrical power engineering from Helwan University, Ain Shams University and Cairo University, Egypt in 1988, 1996 and 2001 respectively. He has been with the Electronic Research Institute (ERI), Cairo, Egypt, since 1990. From 2000 to 2001 he joined LUT, Finland, as a Visiting Researcher. He was appointed as an Assistant Professor at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden from 2003 to 2005. From 2005 to 2010 he was Appointed as Associate Professor in ERI Egypt. In 2010 he was appointed as Full Professor in ERI Egypt. Currently, he is a Full Professor in University of Swaziland, Swaziland. He also served at Yanbu Industrial College, Saudi Arabia and Higher Collages of Technology, United Arab Emirates. His research interests include high-performance ac machines, power quality, switching power converters, DSP-based control applications, and nonlinear control applications in power electronics, smart-grid, microgrids and electric drive systems. Prof. Bayoumi was appointed as an Editor-in Chief of the International Journal in Industrial Electronics and Drives in 2013.
