He received his 5-year Diploma (equivalent to MEng) and PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Patras, Greece, in 2008 and 2012, respectively. From 2011 to 2012, he worked as an Electrical Engineer at the Greek Public Power Corporation (PCC) in the area of renewable systems integration to the medium voltage grid. Since 2013, he has been with the Department of ACSE, University of Sheffield, holding the positions of Research Associate, Research Fellow, Lecturer and Senior Lecturer working in the area of control design and analysis of power converters in smart grid applications. Dr Konstantopoulos is currently an EPSRC UKRI Innovation Fellow in the priority area of cheap and clean energy technologies. He is a member of the IEEE, a certified engineer and member of the National Technical Chamber of Greece, and a fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Recently he was elected as Associate Professor of at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Patras, Greece (Cyberphysical Energy –Electrical- Systems).

His research interests lie in the intersection of the ‘control systems’ and ‘power systems’ research areas, in particular:

·         Advanced control design of power electronic converters

·         Nonlinear modelling and control of renewable energy systems (PV, wind power, etc.)

·         Nonlinear stability of microgrids and smart grids

·         Control design of electrical drives and vehicles

·         Fault ride-through control of grid-tied converters (inverters, rectifiers)

·         Conditions for stability of power networks

·         Fundamental nonlinear control theory
