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.
