Dr Marina Antoniou is an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick. She has been the holder of several highly competitive research fellowships and grants including the Royal Society Research Fellowship 2017 (SiC Power Devices for Smart Grid Systems, £860k) , a Junior Research Fellowship (Selwyn College) and an Early Career EPSRC Centre for Power Electronics award, all of which involved the design and development of power SiC or Si high power devices. Her work has been published as first authored papers in leading IEEE journals and has received awards at major international conferences. She has written five patents and two book chapters. She is a technical committee member for the IEDM, the leading international forum for reporting technological breakthroughs in the areas of semiconductor and electron device technology, design, manufacturing, physics, and modeling and the ISPSD, the leading international conference in the area of power semiconductor devices. She is also a IEEE EDS Power Devices and ICs Committee member. She has previously shadowed the Chief Scientific Advisor for the UK government (Department of Business Energy Innovation Strategy (BEIS)) as a Policy Associate sponsored by the Royal Society. Marina holds a PhD, an MEng and BA from the University of Cambridge (Trinity College).
