A Ph.D. student in Electrical & Electronic Engineering at the University of Southampton, Yazan J.K. Musleh is developing a framework of optical models for tracking photovoltaic systems in temperate climates by conducting real-world tests at Chilbolton Observatory's Outdoor Photovoltaics Lab. Prior to his doctorate pursuit at Southampton, he completed his undergraduate studies in Electrical Power Engineering at Newcastle University in the UK. During his undergraduate tenure, he consistently scored top marks across all modules, culminating in his graduation with a prestigious First Class Honours degree - a feat that earned me a ranking of second among my peers in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering cohort.. This exemplary performance led to him being recognised for achieving the Nominated Student Prize and the Student Performance Prize. Moreover, Yazan held the position of the Lead Course Representative for Electrical and Electronic Engineering undergraduates at Newcastle University, a role that earned him a nomination for the Undergraduate Course Representative of the Year Award.
In addition to his academic pursuits, he has professional experience as an Electronic Design Automation (EDA) intern at Pulsic Inc., where he supported software engineers in performance analysis of the groundbreaking Animate Preview software over various data sets in 2020. His responsibilities included analysing circuits to obtain necessary data and then providing feedback on the software's effectiveness in relation to these specifications. Furthermore, he honed his practical skills as a Photovoltaic Design Engineering Intern at the renowned Modern Arabia for Solar Energy (MASE) firm. During this period, he gained hands-on experience in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of retail and utility-scale solar photovoltaic plants in Jordan.
In September 2021, Yazan transitioned into his doctoral research position under the mentorship of Dr. Tasmiat Rahman, facilitated by his receipt of the "Electronic and Computer Science Research Studentship within the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences."
