Dan Rogers

Research Fellow; Associate Professor of Science Engineering

Dan’s principle research interest is the control and management of electrical energy using power electronic circuits and systems.

Power electronics is found across a huge range of modern engineered systems, including in electricity grids (smartgrids), renewable generation, electric vehicles, medical systems, and in consumer electronics. Alongside his principle research interest in power electronics, Dan also has interests in grid-connected energy storage systems and electrification in the developing world.

Dan leads the Power Electronics Group in the Department of Engineering Science, where he and his team work on a broad range of projects. Recent examples include demonstrating extremely power-dense power converters using advanced cooling systems, and the design of precisely controllable magnetic pulse generators for non-invasive brain stimulation. The Group works closely with industry and has a track record of taking new technologies from concept to laboratory demonstrator to industrial practice.
