Abernathy, Cammy Dean

Positions

An associate dean and longtime professor of materials science and engineering who earned her doctorate from Stanford University is the University of Florida College of Engineering's first female dean. “It’s not really about me. It’s a sign of where engineering has to go in the future,” she said. “We have to change the way engineering is perceived and we have to change the way it is introduced to potential students. This is especially important because engineering — and educating the next generation of engineers — is so critical to our country today.” Abernathy, who specializes in the fabrication of semiconductor materials and devices, joined UF as a professor of materials science and engineering in 1993.
