Biography


Adam completed the Master of Electrical Engineering Program at Białystok University of Technology (Poland) receiving both Master and Engineer degrees. He obtained Doctor of Technical Sciences Degree in Electrical Engineering at the Warsaw University of Technology. 


In 1987, he joined the University of Québec at Trois-Rivières, where he is currently a Full Professor and former Head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. 


Former Director and current Member of the UQTR’s Research Group on Industrial Electronics, he was a Member of the Board of Directors of the University of Québec at Trois-Rivières and the Board of Governors of the University of Québec. 


His research works include supercomputers applications to the electro-thermal applications and complex problems solutions in industrial environment. More specifically he works on numerical algorithms with the use of high performance computing (HPC) for the analysis of the thermal problems in electrical, electronics and nanoelectronics devices.


He has made contributions to the numerical analysis of electro-thermal phenomena exploring and applying various techniques to the power electronics devices design and industrial process control. This contribution is reflected in the number of papers published and presented in journals and conferences including IEEE Xplore Digital Library.


He was a Chair of Canadian Heads of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Fellow of the Engineering Institute of Canada, he is a recipient of the IEEE RAB/MGA Leadership Award and the IEEE Canada W.S. Read Outstanding Service Award.
