Brief Bio:
Dr. Stankovic joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Cleveland State University in June 1999. In 2005 she was promoted to an Associate Professor with tenure. In August 2012, Dr. Stankovic was promoted to the rank of Full Professor. She received her Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1998, M.S. from the University of Belgrade, Serbia and B.S from the University of Belgrade, Serbia.  Prior to her graduate studies she worked eight years as a design engineer in the Nikola Tesla Research Institute in Belgrade, Serbia.

Dr. Stankovic has developed the power program in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cleveland State University. The development of the power program and the modern research and instructional laboratory was part of a nationwide initiative to revitalize power programs across the country.

Dr. Stankovic's laboratory has received external funding for core research totaling over $6,500,000.00, including: $262,960.00 from General Electric Lighting, $35,000.00 from the National Science Foundation (NSF), $25,000.00 from the Department of Energy, $20,000.00 from NASA and $6,150,000.00 from Saber and Synopsis. In addition, Dr. Stankovic has received over $100,000.00 of internal funding.

Dr. Stankovic's research has focused on power electronics and electric machines and drives. She has published novel methods to improve the power quality of the grid-connected power electronics converters under unbalanced operating conditions in the power system. Her published work in cooperation with General Electric-Lighting has focused on electronic ballasts for fluorescent and HID lamps. Her research interests also include renewable energy technologies that are of vital importance for our society (a part of the comprehensive national energy policy outlined in President Obama's "Blueprint for a Secure Energy Future" initiative).

Dr. Stankovic  has conducted technical reviews of numerous journal and conference papers, including: IEEE Transactions on Energy Conversion, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics-Special Issue on Modern Rectifiers, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, IEE Proceedings - Electric Power Applications, IET on Power Electronics etc) as well as number of IEEE and ASEE Conferences. She has served on the Program Committee of the IEEE Energy Tech Conference and as session chair on the IEEE Applied Power Electronics (APEC) Conference and IEEE Power Electronics Specialist Conference (PESC). She has been appointed a session-chair for the upcoming IEEE Energy Tech conference and the upcoming IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) Annual Meeting. She has also served twice on the National Science Foundation (NSF) panel session.

For her research, service, and teaching achievements, Dr. Stankovic received a Faculty Merit Award in 2006, 2012 and 2013 and 2019. In 2008, Dr. Stankovic received a Faculty Merit Award for the development of research and instructional laboratory at Cleveland State University.  In 2008, Dr. Stankovic also received the Fenn College of Engineering Outstanding Teaching Award.
