Prof Manu Haddad obtained the degree of Ingénieur d’Etat in Electrical Engineering in 1985 and then a PhD in High Voltage Engineering in 1990. Following graduation, he took up a Research Associate position, to carry out investigations on the characterisation of ZnO surge arresters including their very fast transient response. In 1995, he was appointed as a Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer in electrical engineering at Cardiff University, with responsibility for the High Voltage Research Group and lecturing duties in high voltage engineering, power systems, electromagnetics, mathematics and electrical circuits. His research interests are in overvoltage protection, insulation systems, insulation coordination and earthing of electrical energy systems. Prof Haddad has completed several research and consultancy projects in overvoltage protection of electrical networks, polymeric insulation and earthing systems, with funding from industry and EPSRC. He has co-authored over 80 publications, with two paper awards. He has recently published an IEE-Power Series Book on Advances in “High Voltage Engineering”. He is a member of the IEE and CIGRE. Prof Haddad is an active Committee member of the IEE South Wales Power Specialist, the British Standard Institution committees on overvoltage protection of low and high voltage systems BSI PEL1 and PEL2, the International Electrotechnical committees IEC TC37 MT4 and MT10, and a member of the Steering Committee of the International Universities Power Engineering Conference (IUPEC). He is also a founding member of the UK Universities High Voltage network (UHVnet) organising its first colloquium at Cardiff University in Jan 2005. http:\www.cf.ac.uk\engin\research\highvolt Electrical & Electronic Engineering
