Dr Paul Moses received his BS degree in Physics, BEng degree with 1st Class Honours in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the PhD degree in Electrical Power Engineering from Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia, in 2004, 2006 and 2012, respectively.
From 2007 to 2009 and 2012 to 2014, Dr Moses served full-time as an Electrical Engineer for the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG), Australian Department of Defence. He performed naval research and engineering support for combat systems for the Australian Collins Class Submarines at the naval base in Garden Island, Western Australia. He has participated in several large coordinated sea-trials and experimental research in support of advancing submarine technologies. Upon finishing his PhD in 2012, Dr Moses accepted a position to work for DSTG’s Power and Energy Systems Group in Melbourne, Australia. He has served as a power systems specialist supporting several naval projects including the SEA 1000 Future Submarine Project. He was in charge of designing and leading the development of one of several high-budget R&D land-based power system test facilities. On behalf of the Commonwealth of Australia, Dr Moses has been called upon as a subject matter expert for leading technical investigations of electrical plant issues in naval vessels. He has advised the Royal Australian Navy on new preventative maintenance procedures and design modifications for protecting multi-megawatt shipboard electrical plant under adverse operating environments at sea.
In 2014, Dr Moses relocated to the USA to take up an academic position at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia, serving as faculty in the Frank Batten College of Engineering in the Electrical and Computer Engineering and Engineering Technology Departments. He developed and taught new courses in utility and marine electrical power engineering as well as headed up research in shipboard power and energy systems, smart grids, power quality and renewable energy.
In 2017, Dr Moses accepted a faculty position at The University of Oklahoma, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in the Norman, Oklahoma campus. Here he is currently working towards expanding the power engineering curriculum and leading the new research Laboratory for Electrical Energy and Power Systems (LEEPS). He is married to his wife, Johanna, who works as a Physician Assistant in the Norman-Moore area.
Dr Moses is active in the professional engineering communities and has published several journal and conference articles in his field. He is a member of the IEEE Power and Energy Society. He also holds an amateur radio operating license.
