Biography

Professor Karen Hapgood is the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science Engineering and Built Environment (SEBE) at Deakin University.

She has a BE and PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Queensland. Her career has criss-crossed between industry and academia. After graduating as a chemical engineer from the University of Queensland (UQ) in 1993, she spent 2.5 years as a control engineer. She returned  to UQ to complete her PhD in chemical engineering and then spent 5 years working for Merck & Co, as a Senior Research Chemical Engineer in the US and a Pharmaceutical Technical Operations Engineer at Merck Australia, before starting as a Senior Lecturer at Monash University in 2006.  In 2012 she became the Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering, and was promoted to Professor in 2014. She moved to Deakin University in 2017 as the Head of School of Engineering, where she has overseen many disciplines of engineering through a growth phase.

In July 2018, she became the Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science, Engineering and the Built Environment which includes the School of Life and Environmental Science, Engineering, Information Technology, and Architecture and Built Environment as well as several research centres, including the Applied Artificial Intelligence Institute and the Centre for Regional and Rural Futures.

Her professional research interests include powder technology, pharmaceutical manufacturing, 3D printing, and promoting diversity in engineering. Professor Hapgood received an Office of Learning and Teaching Citation for her Outstanding contribution to Student Learning in 2010, an Australian Davos Connection (ADC) Australian Leadership Award in 2011 and an Australian and New Zealand Federation of Chemical Engineers (ANZFCHE) Caltex award for Teaching Excellence in 2013. She is a Fellow of IChemE, Engineers Australia and RACI and a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
