Gayatri Mehta is a Professor in the department of Electrical Engineering at the University of North Texas. She received her Ph. D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 2009. Her research interests are broadly in the areas of  electronic design automation, reconfigurable computing, low power digital integrated circuit design, system-on-a chip design, embedded systems, and portable/wearable computing. She is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the ACM.

Dr. Mehta is the director of the Reconfigurable Computing Lab at UNT. She has received the UNT College of Engineering Faculty Teaching Award in 2024, the UNT College of Engineering Faculty Service Award in 2023, the UNT TAMS and Honors College Excellence in Undergraduate Mentoring Award in 2021 and the UNT College of Engineering Research Award in 2017. She is also a recipient of the 2013 IEEE-HKN C. Holmes MacDonald Outstanding Teaching Award. She has designed an interactive mapping game UNTANGLED to uncover human mapping strategies. UNTANGLED received the People's Choice Award in the Games & Apps category of the 2012 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge conducted by Science and National Science Foundation.
