Dr. Mohammad Yazdani-Asrami is a Lecturer in Electrically Powered Aircraft and Operation at the Autonomous Systems & Connectivity (ASC) division, James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow. He is with "Propulsion, Electrification & Superconductivity" group.
He holds a PhD in Electrical Power Engineering. He spent last 12 years on research and development projects related to electrical engineering including conventional and superconducting components research in different countries, including Italy, New Zealand, and the UK.
His expertise lies in cryo-electrification of future transportation system including hydrogen and electric aircraft, by using large scale applied superconductivity and cryogenic technology.
In 2021, he endorsed by the UK Royal Academy of Engineering as Global Talent.
He is a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College, Senior member of IEEE (SMIEEE), member of IET (MIET), member of CIGRE, member of British Cryogenic Council (MBCC), and member of Cryogenic Society of America (MCSA).
He is editor at World Journal of Engineering (Emerald Publishing), Aerospace Systems (Springer), International Journal of Aeronautical and Space Sciences (Springer), Superconductivity (Elsevier), and Transformers Magazine (TM). He also served as guest editor for several special issues in "IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity" and "Superconductor Science and Technology" journals.
