Biography

Dr. Anupama Kaul joined the University of North Texas in September 2017 where she serves as Director of the PACCAR Technology Institute. From September 2014 - August 2017 she was with the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) where she served as the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies in the College of Engineering, and held the AT&T Distinguished Professorship in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. From May 2002 - August 2014, Dr. Kaul was with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), California Institute of Technology (Caltech), NASA.

Dr. Kaul obtained her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of California, Berkeley in Materials Science and Engineering with minors in Electrical Engineering and Physics, while her B.S. degrees (with Honors) were in Physics and Engineering Physics.

In her prior roles, Dr. Kaul has also served as a Program Director at the National Science Foundation in the Electrical Communications and Cyber Systems Division in the Engineering Directorate where she was on rotation as an IPA from the JPL-Caltech. Dr. Kaul's research revolves around exploring the electrical, optical and mechanical properties of novel nanoscale materials and harnessing these properties for device platforms that have applications in electronics, energy-harnessing, sensors, and flexible electronics. She has also held industrial research positions at Motorola Labs (2000-2002) where she conducted research on a DARPA-sponsored RF-MEMS program. In the R&D Division of the Hewlett-Packard Company (1993-1995), she was engaged in research on surface micro-machined ink-jet MEMS devices and components.
