Dr. Aniket Anand

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

Aniket Anand was born in Lucknow, a city in Northern India. He received his B.Tech. in electrical engineering from Uttar Pradesh Technical University (UPTU), India, in 2009, and his M.Tech. in power electronics and drives from Madan Mohan Malaviya Engineering College,  India, in 2012. Aniket then received his Ph.D. from the department of electrical engineering, at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India in 2019. In May 2019, Aniket joined the McMaster Automotive Resource Centre (MARC) as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow. Since then, he has been actively involved in various industry-sponsored research projects as a power electronics expert. His main area of research consists of the design and control of electric power converters and electric drives.  

Full Profile

Aniket developed his passion for technology in his childhood. He was inspired by his father, who is an electrical engineer. His excellent academic performance in science and math from his elementary school years, drove him towards his career in engineering. Soon after graduating, he was hired as an assistant professor at an engineering college. It was there that he taught undergraduate courses and oversaw electrical machines and power electronics drives laboratories. Aniket believes that teaching and research go together, as both include emerging ideas and solving problems. 

Aniket’s Ph.D., which focused on power electronics and drives, resulted in several publications in highly reputable journals. During his Ph.D. research, he identified the different configurations of single-output and dual-output AC-DC PFC (Power Factor Correction) converters including isolated, non-isolated, bridgeless, and integrated converters for low-cost and low- power rating SRM (Switched Reluctance Motor) drives, for household applications. His thirst for knowledge in this area, continuously drives him to explore and learn, which he believes is a lifelong process. Aniket joined Dr. Ali Emadi’s group in May 2019, as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC). His research focuses on the design, development, and control of high-voltage high power density inverters for EV applications. Currently, Aniket’s research is focused on the design of AC-DC PFC converters, DC-DC converters, DC-AC inverters, gate driver design, and electric drives. 

Apart from his research, Aniket enjoys playing cricket and volleyball. He also loves travelling and learning about new cultures.
