BiographyDr. Verne's professional career began immediately after obtaining the Electronics Engineer degree in 2003 from Facultad de Ingeniería (FI), Universidad Nacional de La Plata (UNLP). At that time, he was invited to join the Laboratorio de Electrónica Industrial, Control e Instrumentación (LEICI) by Eng. Nolberto Martínez, the head of instrumentation electronics group within LEICI. His research work was initiated with the investigation, design and construction of a prototype for processing plastic vessels through atmospheric-pressure glow discharge. In parallel, he started his teaching duties as a graduate assistant on the regular courses on Experimental Physics and Computer Programming at Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, UNLP. This activities were held from 2003 to 2006.
In 2006, he decided to start his postgraduate studies on power electronics, specifically on multilevel converters and drives. This work was carried out until 2012, when he obtained the Doctor in Engineering degree from UNLP. At present, he performs as the Head Teaching Assistant on the regular courses on Electronic Circuits and Industrial Electronics on the Electrical Engineering Department, FI-UNLP. Since August 2013, he is also member of the National Research Council of Argentina (CONICET).
His professional expertise also includes 20 years on troubleshooting electronic equipment, ranging from consumer electronics, to railway signalling, train control and power electronics. He has participated in many projects involving the design of electronic systems for custom applications and the execution and commissioning of electrical installations and automated systems in the industrial field.
Nowadays, his professional interest is focused on the study of power electronic converters and renewable energy systems.
