About Kris Campbell

Dr. Kris Campbell came to Boise State University as an associate professor with a joint appointment in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering starting in the Fall of 2005. She received a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and then worked as an engineer at EG&G Energy Measurements and the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) where she became interested in physical chemistry and specifically in chemical systems that could be used for hazardous waste treatment. This interest took her to graduate school at the University of California, Davis, where she earned her Ph.D. After graduation, Dr. Campbell worked on new memory technologies at Micron Technology, Inc. in Boise before joining the faculty at Boise State.
In addition to her numerous patents, she has published over 20 papers in peer reviewed journals, 2 book chapters, and several conference proceedings.
Dr. Campbell’s current research interests are focused in the areas of chalcogenide glasses and new electronic memory technologies based on ion-conduction and electron spin zero-field splitting. She is a member of Sigma Xi, the IEEE, the Society of Women Engineers, and the American Chemical Society.
