Dr GM Shafiullah
PhD

Lecturer in Electrical Engineering

About me

GM received his Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronics from Chittagong University of Engineering Technology (CUET),  Bangladesh. He awarded Master of Engineering (2009) and Doctor of Philosophy (2013) from Central Queensland University, Australia. After completing PhD, he joined as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Electrical and Renewable Energy Engineering, Deakin University, Australia. In 2015, GM joined at Murdoch University as a Lecturer in Electrical Engineering.

GM’s research interests include power systems, smart grid, renewable energy and its enabling technologies. He is the author of more than 55 referred published book chapters, journal papers, and conference papers including IEEE Transactions, Elsevier and AIP Journals.

GM is a regular reviewer of the leading Journals from IEEE, Elsevier and AIP. GM is a  member of IEEE, IEEE PES and Engineers Australia. He is also a member in the editorial Boards of Power and Energy Engineering Journal.
