Marilyn R. Mackiewicz

Adjunct Professor, Portland State University


Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing


Marilyn Mackiewicz received her BA in Chemistry in 2001 at Hunter College the City University of New York. Following this, she earned her Ph.D. in bioinorganic/organo-metallic chemistry under the direction of Marcetta Y. Darensbourg at Texas A&M University in 2005. As a Ruth L. Kirschstein-NRSA fellow 2003 she focused on developing bioinspired organometallic catalysts. During 2006 she worked as a process engineer at Intel as a polysilicon layer owner. Following this she returned to academia in 2007 seeking a new challenge in the field of nanomaterials chemistry as a research associate to Scott M. Reed at Portland State University. Marilyn currently holds a research position as an adjunct professor in the department of chemistry at PSU where she is focused on developing safer nanomaterials for biomedical applications.
