Electrical and Electronics Division, School of Engineering,
University of Warwick.


Professor Mawby joined the University of Warwick having spent 19 years at the University of Wales, Swansea. He has built an international reputation in the area of power electronics and power device research.

His main interests are materials for new power devices, modelling of power devices and circuits, power integrated circuits. He has also worked extensively on development of device simulation algorithms, as well as optoelectronic and quantum based device structures.

Professor Mawby graduated from the University of Leeds, and obtained his PhD from the same institution in 1986, where he studied GaAs/AlGaAs Heterojunction bipolar transistors for high power radio frequency applications in conjunction co-workers at the GEC Hirst Research Centre in Wembley.

Whilst in Swansea Professor Mawby established the Power Electronics Design Centre, which carried work out in a whole range of areas relating to power electronics. The centre focussed on interaction with SME's in Wales as well as larger international companies. Whilst he was in Swansea he held the Royal Academy of Engineering Chair for Pwer Electronics.

Professor Mawby is on many international conference committees including, ISPSD, EPE, BCTM and ESSDERC. He is Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the IET, and a Fellow of the Institute Physics as well as a Senior Member of the IEEE. He has published over 70 Journal papers and 100 conference papers, and is a distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Electron devices society.
