Prof. Prodic obtained Dipl. Ing. degree from the University of Novi Sad (Serbia) in 1994 and received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Colorado Power Electronics Center at the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 2000 and 2003, respectively. In 2003 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto, where, in 2004, he formed Laboratory for Power Management and Integrated Switch-Mode Power Supplies (SMPS). Prof. Prodic’s general research interest is Power Electronics. Specific research interests include practical advanced control methods for power electronics, converter topologies, mixed-signal IC design for power electronics, low-power high-frequency switch-mode power supplies (SMPS) and power management systems. The applications of interest range from on-chip power supplies for portable devices to power management systems in vehicles. His research also covers use of power electronics in biomedical applications. In this area he has published more than 80 research papers. His research also resulted in more than 20 patents and patent applications, many of them have become commercial products.
