Dr Seyed Morteza Alizadeh is coordinating research activities and research training with a focus on Doctorate of Engineering program. He is also a lecturer and unit coordinator in Electrical Engineering and Industrial Automation. He graduated with a PhD degree from Victoria University in December 2017.

He has over 10 years of extensive experience in teaching and research in the university sector. Before being appointed to Engineering Institute of Technology, he worked as an academic member at Victoria University, Australia. His research interests deal with the power system analysis and machine learning. Initially, this was applied to the improvement of the performance of Distributed Generation systems using Artificial Intelligence-Based methods. More recently, his research efforts have involved the optimal sizing and siting of wind power plants in distribution networks using novel mathematical methods. He is a subject matter expertise on modelling and simulating power system networks using software commonly used in the industry. Dr. Alizadeh has contributed to many international conferences and journals as a technical program committee member and editorial board member.
