Welcome to Fariborz Musavi’s Home Page


 

Dr. Fariborz Musavi is currently an assistant professor at School of Engineering and Computer Science, Washington State University Vancouver. He has a bachelor degree from Iran University of Science and Technology, in Tehran, Iran; a master degree fro Concordia University in Montreal, QC, Canada and PhD degree from University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada, all in electrical engineering with emphasis on power electronics.

Prior to joining WSU, he held several industry positions, including a Design Engineering position at EMS Technologies Inc., Lead Design Engineer position at DRS Pivotal Power, Group Leader at Alpha Technologies, Manager of Research and Engineering at Delta-Q Technologies Corp., and the most recent position as Director of Engineering at CUI Inc. While working at Delta-Q Technologies, a leading provider of battery charging solutions, he led a team of researchers and engineers to conduct research and development on the next generation of on-board battery chargers for electric vehicles. He developed a 3.3 kW on-board charger in collaboration with Delphi Automotive LLP. This product was intended to be used in Chevy Volt vehicles. The automotive and high reliability industrial chargers produced by Delta-Q Technologies made them a brand name in the world of EV battery chargers, dominating the industrial charger market with over 90% share of the market. Delta-Q Technologies was acquired by ZAPI S.p.A. in December 2016.
