Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering
BioDanielle J. Mai joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at Stanford in January 2020. She earned her B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan and her M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the guidance of Prof. Charles M. Schroeder. Danielle was an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow in Prof. Bradley D. Olsen's group at MIT, where she engineered materials with selective biomolecular transport properties, elucidated mechanisms of toughness and extensibility in entangled associative hydrogels, and developed high-throughput methods for the discovery of polypeptide materials. The Mai Research Group integrates precise biopolymer engineering with multiscale experimental characterization to advance biomaterials development and to enhance fundamental understanding of soft matter physics.
Ph.D. Student in Chemical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2020
BioDaniela Marin is a first-year graduate student at Stanford University. She previously worked as a post-undergraduate researcher at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and worked toward advancing the commercialization of bio-derived materials and methods of plastics recycling. Daniela holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.A. in Physics through a dual-degree program with Columbia University and William Jewell College. Her education is combined with undergraduate research that focused on mitigating the effects of viscous fingering using step-growth polymerization to stabilize the instability. Her transition to Columbia introduced her to the field of atmospheric aerosols where she worked with Professor V. Faye McNeill’s group to investigate a photoinduced particle growth process and its role in secondary organic aerosol formation. She is enthusiastic about using her technical abilities and interest in the environment to contribute to Stanford Chemical Engineering's mission of developing technologies that will improve and maintain environmental health.
Associate Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, by courtesy, of Chemical Engineering and Center Fellow, by courtesy, at the Woods Institute for the Environment
BioProfessor Meagan Mauter is appointed as an Associate Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and as a Center Fellow, by courtesy, in the Woods Institute for the Environment. She directs the Water and Energy Efficiency for the Environment Lab (WE3Lab) with the mission of providing sustainable water supply in a carbon-constrained world through innovation in water treatment technology, optimization of water management practices, and redesign of water policies. Ongoing research efforts include: 1) developing automated, precise, robust, intensified, modular, and electrified (A-PRIME) water desalination technologies to support a circular water economy, 2) identifying synergies and addressing barriers to coordinated operation of decarbonized water and energy systems, and 3) supporting the design and enforcement of water-energy policies.
Professor Mauter also serves as the research director for the National Alliance for Water Innovation, a $110-million DOE Energy-Water Desalination Hub addressing water security issues in the United States. The Hub targets early-stage research and development of energy-efficient and cost-competitive technologies for desalinating non-traditional source waters.
Professor Mauter holds bachelors degrees in Civil & Environmental Engineering and History from Rice University, a Masters of Environmental Engineering from Rice University, and a PhD in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from Yale University. Prior to joining the faculty at Stanford, she served as an Energy Technology Innovation Policy Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and the Mossavar Rahmani Center for Business and Government at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and as an Associate Professor of Engineering & Public Policy, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
Executive Director, Program-Bao Z.
Current Role at StanfordAngela McIntyre is the Executive Director of the Stanford Wearable Electronics (eWEAR) Initiative. She manages the eWEAR affiliates program and provides member companies opportunities to connect with research and events related to wearables at Stanford University. As a primary contact to eWEAR, Angela fosters membership, assists in forming collaborations between industry and faculty, leads eWEAR events, and is an evangelist for wearables research at Stanford.
Director of Finance and Operations, Chemical Engineering
Current Role at StanfordCurrently, Stella is the Director of Finance and Operations of Chemical Engineering within the School of Engineering. The department has approximately 19 faculty members, 18 staff members, 134 doctoral students, 60 post-doctoral researchers and over 122 masters and undergraduate students. Her responsibilities include strategic planning, financial management, faculty and student affairs, staff hiring, mentoring and supervision, facilities and operations management, policy compliance and furthering of department interests.
She works closely with the department chair to execute policy and strategic direction for the operation of the department and participates in short and long-term planning for department operations and activities. She also ensures that the faculty, students, and staff in the department have the necessary support to carry out their academic, research and administrative duties.
