Short Bio

Dr. Maryam Salari was a research fellow at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Maryam was involved with the materials characterization and research coordination for the HSPH-NIEHS Nanosafety Research Center. Her research was focused on developing new antimicrobial and active food packaging materials.

Maryam’s research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of different materials and applying them to a wide range of applications from biology (wearable electrochemical biosensors) to electrochemical energy media (lithium ion batteries, supercapacitors, water splitting to hydrogen generation and pollutant CO2 reduction). In 2013, Maryam graduated with a PhD in materials science and electrochemistry from the Institute for Superconducting & Electronic Materials (ISEM), University of Wollongong, in Australia. After graduation, she joined the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) at Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) as an associate research fellow. In 2015, she joined the Department of Chemistry at Boston University to carry out her postdoctoral studies.
