icon for Google ScholarMaryam Ghazisaeidi is an Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University. She received her B.S degree in Civil Engineering and M.S. degree in Mechanics of Materials and Structures from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran, and her Ph.D in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Before joining Ohio State in 2013, Dr. Ghazisaeidi held a postdoctoral position at Brown University. Her research interest is in the area of computational materials science at the atomic-scale with an emphasis on understanding structure and chemistry of defects in structural materials to predict novel material behavior.
