Dr. Amjad Hussain is an Assistant Professor at AUK, Kuwait where he is involved in teaching Electrical Engineering courses and supervising research. Previously he has worked as a Senior R&D Engineer-Power Systems Technologies at EATON European Innovation Centre (EEIC), Prague, the Czech Republic. At EATON, where he was involved in state-of-the-art power system projects (R&D), involving advanced protection and control techniques and related commercial products. He has also worked as a Project Engineer from 2008 to 2010 with a major switchgear company in Gulf region and supervised construction and pre-commissioning of MV electrical distribution substations. He received the bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan, in 2007, and the master's and the Ph.D. from Aalto University, School of Electrical Engineering, Finland, in 2012 and 2016 respectively. He has authored/; co-authored more than 30 articles in international journals and conferences and has one patent under review. He is the recipient of awards: The Honorable Mention Paper Prize at IEEE-IAS PCIC Conference 2014, San Francisco and The Best-evaluated Author at IEEE RTUCON 2016, Riga. He received multiple national research grants during doctoral research, total amount €80,000. His research expertise and interests include advanced power system protection, control and reconfiguration techniques in modern smart grids involving Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and AC/DC hybrid microgrids, power quality, electrical fault detection and location, pre-emptive protection techniques, condition monitoring of power equipment, insulation diagnostic systems, and partial discharge (PD) measurements in medium voltage and high voltage equipment. He is a reviewer of various periodicals and conferences
