Dr. Kazi Rashed received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU), Texas in 2015. His Ph.D. research topic was to analyze electrical behavior of Silicon Carbide Power MOSFET devices due to space and terrestrial radiation effects. This research work was required to use NASA world-class radiation facilities, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory and Brookhaven National Laboratory.  Dr. Rashed's research group was the first to report measured radiation effects due to high energy neutrons on silicon carbide devices, and that these effects are directly related to applications in the aerospace industry. The results of his research were reported in a 2014 IEEE publication.

Dr. Rashed is in touch with the CRESSE (Center for Radiation Engineering & Science for Space Exploration) research group at PVAMU and is interested in continuing his research on analyzing radiation effects on wide band gap semiconductor devices.

Prior to joining UT Tyler, Dr. Rashed spent 10 years as a faculty member at DeVry University in Houston, Texas.  During his career at DeVry, he received multiple teaching and service recognition awards.
