Amanda Marciel

Amanda Marciel received her BS in chemical biology from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2008. She obtained her PhD in biophysics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2015, where she developed a synthetic platform for production of non-natural polymers for materials assembly and single molecule dynamics working under the supervision of Professor Charles M. Schroeder. In 2015 Amanda joined Professor Matthew Tirrell's group as a postdoctoral researcher in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. Currently her interests include complex coacervate formation.
