Tamara Floyd Smith is an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and 3M Scholar at Tuskegee University.  She completed her B.S. degree in chemical engineering at Tuskegee University in 1996.  She went directly to graduate school and earned an M.S. in chemical engineering practice in 1998 and a Ph.D  in chemical engineering from MIT in 2001.  Then, she joined the staff of Lucent Technologies Bell Labs, Norcross, GA Division (currently OFS) from 2001-2003.  In 2003, she joined the faculty of Tuskegee University as an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering.

Since 2003, Floyd Smith’s scientific research projects have investigated microfluidics for materials processing and biosensing.  Because Tuskegee University historically has a teaching focus, she has also been involved in engineering education research since 2004.  In 2009, she joined the NEPCM team to integrate microfluidics and nanostructure enhanced phase change materials (NEPCM) for thermal management in microelectronic devices.
