Diana López Caiza
received her Engineer degree in Electronic from Escuela Politécnica Nacional (EPN), Quito, Ecuador, in 2013.
At the beginning of this year, she presented the PhD exam in Electronic Engineering from Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (UTFSM), Valparaíso, Chile. Her doctoral thesis, entitled “High voltage ratio step-up converters for photovoltaic microinverters” presents a comprehensive study of three non-linear control strategies for single-stage step-up dc-ac topologies for PV microinverter configuration.
Now, she is beginning a Postdoctoral in the Energy Transformation Center from Universidad Andres Bello, Chile. Her main research interests include dc-dc and dc-ac converter topologies, and control of power electronics converters applied to renewable energy technologies.
