The world deals day in and day out with electrical power conversion— trillions of adjustments are made daily to deliver electricity from wall outlets to power any electronic device. And I works on the systems that do the converting – called ‘Power Electronic Converters’ – which are very inefficient, costing the world billions every year.So, through my research, I'm exploring a better way of converting this ‘power’ efficiently through ‘Gallium Nitride Switches’(GaN).
