WMG researcher hosting webinar for WoMENAIT

Dr Mona Faraji Niri, from WMG at the University of Warwick has been invited to host a webinar for WoMENAIT – a non-profit organisation honouring and empowering women of middle-east and North Africa in technology.https://warwick.ac.uk/services/communications/medialibrary/images/july_2020/mona.jpg

Mona will be talking about energy storage, specifically on batteries, as part of an event for renewable energies on the 24th of September at 7pm, here webinar is titles "Energy Storage: Battery, state of the art and future technologies for electric vehicles.”

As a research fellow at WMG, the University of Warwick, Mona specialises in battery manufacturing and battery management systems. She has extensive experience in design, development and implementation of battery control algorithms and hardware, and been involved in projects for key business partners in automotive and electrification.

Mona has a solid background in control engineering, she earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s in electrical engineering at the top of her class, and holds a PhD degree with focus on complex systems, stochastic and switching control and machine learning from Iran university of science and technology.Dr Mona Faraji Niri's poster for her talk for Women of MENA in tech

Dr Mona Faraji Niri, from WMG, University of Warwick comments:

“I first developed my interest in Engineering back in 1990s, the first time I got into a plane to travel with my family, it was amazing and I was thinking how such a huge thing can fly, I knew that it’s all about mathematics, physics and engineering, years later I was there as a control engineer, designing algorithms for dynamical systems.

“Even now in 2020, Women still miss many opportunities in growing and highly paid jobs that require science and engineering skills. I’m really glad that via this talk I’d be able to share some information to encourage women into engineering fields especially the rapidly growing area of clean and renewable energies.

“There is sometimes an unconscious bias cause women and girls make choices that takes them away from professions in the fields of science, technology and engineering, I hope that my story and how I got here encourage and give women a more clear vision of the steps that need to be taken.”
