Professor Aghassi-Hagmann lehrt und forscht auf dem Gebiet der elektronischen Bauelemente und elektronischen Systemen der Zukunft am Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie mit einer Abteilung am Institut für Nanotechnologie. Sie studierte an der RWTH Aachen Physik und promovierte an der damaligen Universität Karlsruhe (heute KIT). Danach war sie knapp sechs Jahre in verantwortlichen Positionen in der Forschung und Entwicklung in der Halbleiterindustrie tätig (Infineon Technologies/Intel). Im Jahr 2013 folgte Sie einem Ruf an die Hochschule Offenburg mit einer gleichzeitigen Forschungsgruppe am KIT zu gedruckten Materialien und Bauelementen im Forschungsfeld Information der Helmholtz Gemeinschaft. Nach einem Forschungssemester an der EMPA/ETH Zürich 2019 wurde sie in 2021 als W3-Professorin am KIT ernannt. Zu Ihren Forschungsinteressen gehören elektronische Halbleiter, Herstellung,  Simulation und CAD Design von Bauelementen, elektronischer Transport durch Mikro- und Nanostrukturen sowie die gedruckte Elektronik.
