Prior to JPL she was at Motorola Labs where she conducted research on RF-MEMS switches and components derived from organic materials on flexible substrates.  She has also been an R&D Engineer at Hewlett-Packard in the area of ink-jet MEMS technology.  Dr. Kaul has 6 NASA Patent Awards, a NASA Team Accomplishment Award, 9 issued and pending patents, and several invited book chapters on nanoscale science and technology, in addition to more than 60 journal and conference publications. 

She is active in chairing conferences for the IEEE, SPIE and has served on the program review committee of the Nanotech Conference and Expo (NSTI).  Dr. Kaul is a Senior Member of the IEEE and is currently the American Editor of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Letters, Associate Editor of Reviews in Advanced Sciences and Engineering, Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Nanoengineering and Nanomanufacturing and the Open Process Chemistry Journal.

The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2023 budget of $9.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
