Amanda Marciel received her B.S. in Chemical Biology from the University of California-Berkeley in 2008. She obtained her Ph.D. 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 post doctoral researcher in the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. Currently her interests include complex coacervate formation.
- Phase Behavior and Salt Partitioning in Polyelectrolyte Complex Coacervates
- Structure and Rheology of Polyelectrolyte Complex Coacervates
- Oligonucleotide-Peptide Complexes: Phase Control by Hybridization
- A zwitterionic block-copolymer, based on glutamic acid and lysine, reduces the biofouling of UF and RO membranes
