[Wallis, Kendra L]
  • Senior Lecturer, Department of Materials Science & Engineering
  • Assistant Professor of Instruction

Biography

Dr. Wallis did her academic work in physics, earning a Bachelor of Science from West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas, in 1985. She earned a Master of Science from UTA in 1993 and earned a PhD in physics from Texas Christian University in 2008. After teaching physics for many years, she attended several conferences on engineering education where she became familiar with the problem solving course at UTA.

In 2017, Dr. Wallis joined the teaching faculty at UTA as a member of the Materials Science and Engineering Department. She enjoys teaching ENGR 1250 Engineering Problem Solving and is interested in helping students develop teamwork skills and become the best prospective engineer for employers. She attends research seminars in both materials science and physics and is a member of the Women's Faculty & Staff Network.
