Jacquelyn K. Nagel, Ph.D.

James Madison University

Dr. Jacquelyn K. Nagel is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering at James Madison University. Dr. Nagel has eight years of diversified engineering experience, both in academia and industry, including: sensor design, bio-inspired design, instrumentation and control, manufacturing, and design for the factory floor. She has worked for Mission Control Technologies, Intel, Motoman Inc., and Kimberly-Clark Corp.
Dr. Nagel has been working in the area of bio-inspired design since 2007. Her research focuses on developing engineering design tools and methods to make biological inspiration accessible to engineering design problems, as well as instructional resources for teaching bio-inspired design. Dr. Nagel has applied her research to the areas of manufacturing, sensors, and alternative energy systems. In addition to authoring numerous publications on bio-inspired design, she has given multiple invited talks, including webinars for SWE and INCOSE members, conference presentations, and lectures to undergraduate and graduate students.

Dr. Nagel’s pioneering work in bio-inspired design has been recognized nationally and internationally. In 2012 she represented IEEE-USA as the National eWeek Foundation New Faces of Engineering Award recipient, and in 2016 she received the SWE Distinguished New Engineer Award. She earned her Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Oregon State University and her M.S. and B.S. in manufacturing engineering and electrical engineering, respectively, from the Missouri University of Science and Technology.
