Julia A. King
Dr. Julia King graduated from Purdue University with a BSc in Chemical Engineering in 1982, and then went on to earn her MSc and PhD in Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, at the University of Wyoming. After graduating, Dr. King worked as a Process Control Engineer and Process Engineer at Exxon USA from 1989 to 1993 and went on to become the Director of the Carbon Materials Science Center, at DuPont USA. With research interests on the topic of composite materials, Dr. King analyzes the effects of adding various carbon fillers to thermoplastic polymers, to produce thermally conductive resins. Currently, she holds a position as Professor of Chemical Engineering at Michigan Technological University.
