Alex Lidow is CEO of Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to founding EPC, Dr. Lidow was CEO of International Rectifier Corporation. A co-inventor of the HEXFET power MOSFET, Dr. Lidow holds many patents in power semiconductor technology and has authored numerous publications on related subjects. Lidow earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Caltech in 1975 and his Ph.D. from Stanford in 1977.
Johan Strydom is Vice President, Applications at EPC Corporation. He received his Ph.D. from the Rand Afrikaans University, South Africa in 2001. From 1999 to 2002 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Center for Power Electronics (CPES), Virginia Tech. Dr. Strydom held various application engineering positions at International Rectifier Corporation and Linear Technology Corporation, working on DC-DC converters, motor drives, and class-D audio.
Dr. Michael A. de Rooij is Executive Director of Applications Engineering at Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC). Prior to joining EPC he worked at Windspire Energy where he helped develop the next generation of small vertical-axis wind turbine inverters. In addition, Dr. de Rooij has worked as a Senior Engineer at the GE Global Research Center. Dr. de Rooij's research interests and activities include, solid-state high-frequency power converters and devices, utility applications of power electronics, uninterruptible power supplies, integration of power electronic converters, power electronic packaging, induction heating, photovoltaic converters, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Systems and gate drivers with protection features. Dr. de Rooij is a Senior Member of the IEEE. He received his Ph.D. from the Rand Afrikaans University (now called The University of Johannesburg), South Africa.
David Reusch is Director, Applications at EPC Corporation. Dr. Reusch earned a doctorate in electrical engineering from Virginia Tech, where he also earned his bachelor's and master's degrees. While working on his Ph.D. he was a Bradley Fellow at the Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES). Dr. Reusch has first-hand experience designing with GaN transistors to meet the demands for lower loss and higher power density in power converters. He is active in IEEE organizations and during the last several years has published papers at APEC and ECCE conferences.
