Tania Paskova

Dr. Paskova is a distinguished scientist with over 25 years of combined experience in academia, industry, and government agencies in a multi-cultural environment.

Her expertise spans from semiconductor physics, material synthesis, advanced characterization of wide bandgap materials for electronic and photonic applications with particular focus on nitrides. Her current research interests include advanced crystal growth concepts, fundamental optical properties, surface modifications for sensing applications, and thermal transport in wide bandgap materials for high power applications.

She is editor and co-editor of two scientific books; author of 15 invited book chapters and reviews, and of more than 260 scientific papers in peer-review journals and conference proceedings. She has a strong record as a principal investigator on a number of projects granted by MDA, DARPA, AFRL, ARO, and NSF. She is serving as Editor for the Journal of Crystal Growth and a member of several referee boards.

Dr. Paskova has recently completed a 4-year tenure as a Program Director for Electronic and Photonic Materials (EPM) program with Division of Materials Research (DMR) at National Science Foundation (NSF) and is currently serving as a Program Manager for Electronic Sensing (ES) program in Army Research Office (ARO).
