Dr. Sharma received her Ph.D. degree in Physics from Delhi University, India and MS in Materials Science and Engineering from Lehigh University, PA. She has held academic positions at National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico and University of North Texas, TX before moving to Binghamton University in 2006. She worked as Research Assistant Professor in the physics department before joining the Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging (S3IP) Center in 2007.
Dr. Sharma’s research interests include fabrication and characterization of semiconductor and biomolecules based nanostructures for electronic device applications; glass surface modifications for photonics and medical applications; and thermal management in electronic devices. She has extensive experience in surface analytical techniques such as atomic force microscopy (AFM), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), ultra-high vacuum scanning tunneling microscopy (UHV-STM), secondary electron microscopy (SEM), ellipsometry, profilometry and FTIR spectroscopy; device fabrication using photolithography & e-beam lithography; and non–destructive evaluation using scanning acoustic microscopy (C-SAM), 2D x-ray and 3D Computer Tomography (CT). She has published 39 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. She also enjoys teaching and has taught undergraduate level introductory physics and graduate level nuclear physics courses.
