Marcelo A. Perez (M’07, SM'14) was born in Concepcion, Chile, in 1976. He received the Engineer degree in electronic engineering, the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, and the D.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Concepcion, Concepcion, Chile, in 2000, 2003, and 2006, respectively.
From 2006 to 2009 he holds a postdoctoral position at the Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria, Valparaiso, Chile, conducting research in the area of power converters. Since 2009 he becomes an associate researcher at the same institution. His main interest are control of power converters, multilevel converters and HVDC systems.
Dr. Perez is the IEEE-IES Region 9 Chapter Coordinator and President of the IEEE-IES Chapter Chile.
