Levy Costa is an Assistant Professor in the Electromechanics and Power Electronics group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research interests lie in high power electronics, especially in modular converter designs, solid-state transformers, DC-DC converters, and high-efficiency converter topologies for industrial and renewable energy system applications.
Levy Costa received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Federal University of Ceara, (Fortaleza, Brazil) in 2010, the M.Sc. degree from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, (Florianopolis, Brazil) in 2013, and PhD degree in electrical engineering from the Christian-Albrecht-University of Kiel (Kiel, Germany) in 2019. From 2013 to 2014, he was a Power Electronics R&D Engineer with Schneider Electric, where he worked with uninterruptible power supply systems (UPS). During this period, he was also an assistant lecturer (part-time) at Federal University of Ceara (Brazil). From 2014 to 2018, he was a Research Assistant with the Chair of Power Electronics, Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel (Kiel, Germany). In 2018, he joins the ABB Corporate Research Center in Switzerland as an R&D Scientist working in different power electronics topics. Since 2021, Levy Costa is Assistant Professor of the Power Electronics Lab at TU/e.
