Dr. Michelle Pantoya received her PhD from the University of California, Davis in 1999 and joined the faculty in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Texas Tech University in 2000. As the J. W. Wright Regents Endowed Chair Professor, her research focuses on studying metal particle combustion in ways that can enhance our national safety and security. She has received many research awards including the US Presidential Early Career Award (PECASE) and the DoD Young Investigator Program Award and has 5 patents and over 200 journal publications on this topic. Dr. Pantoya is also an advocate for early engineering education with DOD and DOE STEM grants that promote the development and integration of educational tools and models for culturally and linguistically diverse students. She is also the co-author of several children’s books introducing engineering to young kids (i.e., Engineering Elephants, Designing Dandelions, Optimizing an Octopus).
