Overview


Professor Kashem Muttaqi is the Director of the ARC Training Centre in Energy Technologies for Future Grids, sponsored by Australian Government, and several industries and Universities in Australia. He is also the Director of the Australian Power and Energy Research Institute (APERI). He is a Senior Professor and the Discipline Leader – Electrical Engineering at the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, University of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia.

He received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh in 1993, the M.Eng.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1996 and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Multimedia University, Selangor, Malaysia in 2001.

Professor Muttaqi’s research interests include electrical vehicles, energy technologies, distributed generation, solid state transformer, power converters, power electronic applications, renewable energy, solar PV, wind turbines, wave energy, smart grids, micro-grids, standalone power supply, power grids, power system planning and control.

He served as the Postgraduate Coursework Degree Coordinator at the School of Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering, University of Wollongong from 2008 to 2010, and the Cluster Head for 09 Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences (EIS) at the University of Wollongong from 2019 to 2021. He was associated with the University of Tasmania, Australia as a Research Fellow/Lecturer/Senior Lecturer from 2002 to 2007, and with the Queensland University of Technology, Australia as a Research Fellow from 2000 to 2002. Previously, he worked for Multimedia University, Malaysia as a Lecturer from 1997 to 2000. He also worked as an Electrical Executive for KTA Tenaga (Consulting Engineers) in Malaysia from 1996 to 1997. Dr. Muttaqi worked as the Deputy-Director of the Centre for Renewable Energy and Power systems (CREPS) at the University of Tasmania before he joined the University of Wollongong. In recognition of his skills in the sphere of teaching and learning, he was awarded a 'Teaching Merit Certificate' in 2004 from the University of Tasmania.

Professor Muttaqi is a Member of EEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Power & Energy Society, IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, and IEEE Power Electronics Society. He is currently serving as the Paper Review Chair and Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, the Chair for Industrial Automation and Control Committee (IACC) of IEEE Industry Application Society (IAS), and an Editor of IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy and IET Generation, Transmission & Distribution. Currently Professor Muttaqi is serving as a Deputy Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Transactions in Industry Applications.

He has more than 25 years of academic experience and authored or co-authored 500 papers in international journals and conference proceedings. He has supervised more than 26 higher degree research students to completion.
