Prof. Behrooz Bahrani started his academic journey at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, where he received his B.Sc. degree. He then continued to expand his knowledge at the University of Toronto, Canada, earning an M.Sc. degree. He completed his educational journey at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Here he obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2012. His academic focus throughout these years remained firmly rooted in electrical power engineering.

After spending a few years as a postdoctoral researcher at several well-known institutions, such as EPFL, Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 2015, he  joined Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Currently, he is serving as an Associate Professor and is also the Director of the Grid Innovation Hub at the same institution.

Prof. Behrooz Bahrani’s research interests lie in the area of inverter-dominated power systems. Specifically, he is engaged in investigating inverter-based resources. Including their control and applications in power systems, and how to integrate renewable energy resources into the grid. In recent years, Prof. Bahrani has been increasingly focused on grid forming inverters and their applications in power systems.
