About

Wilmar Martinez received his B.S. degree in Electronics Engineering and the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Universidad Nacional de Colombia in 2011 and 2013, and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Function and System Engineering from Shimane University, Japan in 2016. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Toyota Technological Institute, Japan in 2016, and at Aalto University, Finland in 2017. From 2018, he is an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering (ESAT) Department at KU Leuven, Belgium. His current research interests include multi objective optimization of power converters, evaluation of iron losses of magnetic materials, and study of SiC and GaN Switches for Electric Vehicles and Renewable Energy Systems.
