Himani Sharma

Dr. Himani Sharma received her Ph.D. degree in Chemistry (2006) from University of Delhi, India. She worked as a Research Associate in Electrical Engineering department in Alabama A&M University on NSA-funded project, before joining Georgia Institute of Technology as postdoc in Packaging Research Center in 2008. She was later promoted to a Research Scientist-II position as she continued her materials research. In her role as a Technical Leader for 3D-IPAC (Integrated passive and active component program) in PRC, she developed and drove technologies in partnership with companies in consumer and medical electronics. Her research focused on developing materials for next-generation passive components and susbrates.

She has authored more than 60 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and conferences. She has co-authored 1 book, 3 book chapters and 1 pending patent. Dr. Sharma transitioned to teaching undergraduates in School of Material Science and Engineering (MSE) at GaTech in July 2019. She is currently responsible for junior and senior laboratory courses in MSE.
