Dr. Puteri S. Megat Hamari is currently an Assistant Professor in Integrated Engineering at Minnesota State University. Mankato. She is with the Twin Cities Engineering, a project-based learning program where students are taught through collaboration in small groups on industry sourced engineering projects. In addition to teaching engineering core competencies using project-based pedagogy, she also guides students in professional development. Dr. Megat Hamari was formerly a Visiting Scholar at the department of Physics and Astronomy and worked on interdisciplinary research between the Physics and the Diamond Research Group at Vanderbilt University. She has invaluable experience in the research and fabrication of diamond microstructures. Dr. Megat Hamari has fabricated microelectronic monolithic and freestanding boron-doped diamond resistors that involve micromachining processes. She was also responsible for conducting and maintaining experiments for the Low Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED) and Auger Spectroscopy at Vanderbilt. She earned her Bachelor of Engineering from Vanderbilt University and worked for Motorola Semiconductors Inc. as a process engineer in a wafer fabrication facility before continuing her graduate studies. Other than being busy with her research and caring for her two children, she loves to cook and being outdoors. She also has an interest in traveling and plans to visit all 50 states. Her goal is to inspire more women to become engineers.
