Bio
Elena Lomonova – Full Professor, Head of Electromechanics and Power Electronics Group at Electrical Engineering Faculty of Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands). Prof.dr. Elena Lomonova studied Electromechanical and Control Systems at Moscow Aviation Institute – (State University of Aerospace Technology), Russia. After graduating (cum laude), she started her industrial carrier at the Research and Development Company “Astrophysics”, Moscow, Russia (1982-1987). Afterwards she moved to the Electromechanical and Control Systems Department at State University of Aerospace Technology (MAI), and was active in research, education and industrial projects (1987-1997). She gained her PhD (cum laude, 1993) on researching of powertrain and control systems for autonomous vehicles with multi-level power supply subsystems for on-board loads and laser equipment. Since 1998 she worked for the Delft University of Technology before joining Eindhoven University of Technology in 2000. In March 2009 she was appointed as a full-time professor. Her chair focuses on fundamental and applied research on enabling energy conversion theory, methods and technologies for high-precision, automotive and medical systems. Her research activities span various facets of advanced mechatronics, electromechanics and electromagnetics including rotary electrical machines and drives, linear and planar actuation systems, multi-level power converters and wireless energy transfer. She is an author and co-author of more than 450 scientific publications and more than 10 patents. Under her supervision 26 PhDs had accomplished their research work, five of them with cum laude. In 2016 she received a prestigious Nagamori Award (Japan) for contributions in development of the advanced mechatronic systems during 2005-2015.
