Asghar Akbari was born in 1962 in Iran. He received his BSc degree in 1988 from Tehran University, his MSc degree in 1991 from Amirkabir University, and the Ph.D. degree in 1998 from Tarbiat Modarres University, Tehran, Iran, all in electrical engineering. Since 1998 Dr. Akbari has worked as a lecturer and a member of the academic staff of K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. From April 2000 to February 2002, he worked as a guest scientist (postdoctoral fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation of Germany) for the Schering Institute of High Voltage Techniques and Engineering, Leibniz University of Hanover, Germany. His main research interests are monitoring and diagnostics of high-voltage apparatus, partial discharges, modeling, and computer applications in power systems. While he is an associate professor for high-voltage engineering and power systems at K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, he is presently a guest scientist at the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany.
