Danielle Mai

Assistant Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, Stanford University

Danielle J. Mai is an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University. 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. During her postdoc at MIT, Danielle was named an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow. The Mai Lab engineers biopolymers, which are the building blocks of life. Specifically, the group integrates precise biopolymer engineering with multi-scale experimental characterization to advance biomaterials development and to enhance fundamental understanding of soft matter physics. Danielle’s work was recently recognized through the AIChE 35 Under 35 Award (2020), American Physical Society DPOLY/UKPPG Lecture Exchange (2021), and Air Force Office of Scientific Research Young Investigator Program Award (2022).
