Pawan K. Kahol received his Ph.D. degree in 1979 from Panjab University, India. He served as a postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Leeds, England, (1979-1982), as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at Stuttgart University, Germany, (1983-1984), as a Research Associate at Stuttgart University, Germany, (1984-1986), and as a Research Fellow at University of West Virginia, USA, (1986-1988). From 1988 to 2005, he served at Wichita State University in several capacities such as an Assistant Professor (1988-1992), an Associate Professor (1992-1998), a Professor of physics (1998-2005), a Professor of physics and chemistry (2004-2005), the Chairperson of the Physics Department (2001-2003), and the Associate Dean of the Graduate School (2003-2005). After moving to Missouri State University, he has held the positions of the Department Head of physics, astronomy, and materials science (2005-2009) and the Associate Dean of the College of Natural and Applied Sciences (2009-present). He has published over 160 research papers in physics, chemistry, and materials science, made over 170 presentations, chaired sessions at international meetings, served as a Review Panelist at several funding agencies, coauthored solution manuals for both the calculus-based and the trigonometry-based introductory physics textbooks, received effective teaching awards including the 2009 Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Missouri Professor of the Year Award, and served in administrative positions for several years. His research interests are magnetism of nanoscale particles, magnetic, EPR and electrical behavior of conducting polymers, EPR and ENDOR of KDP-type ferroelectric crystals and dipolar glasses, EPR and magnetic interactions in ferromagnetic/ antiferromagnetic novel materials, spintronic oxide materials, thin films of dilute magnetic semiconductors, organic-inorganic hybrid devices, nanocomposite materials, and multiferroics.
