Professor of Solid state Chemistry, University of Konstanz & Adjunct PI CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna
Miriam Unterlass studied chemistry, process engineering, and materials science in Germany, the UK, and France, and obtained a PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in 2011. She worked as a postdoc at the École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles in Paris, France, before starting her own group at the Technical University of Vienna (TUW), Austria, in 2012. Miriam was tenured as an Assistant and subsequently as an Associate Professor at TUW and obtained her habilitation in materials chemistry in 2018. In 2021, she became a Full Professor of Solid-State Chemistry at the University of Konstanz. Since 2018, Miriam has also been an Adjunct Principal Investigator at the Research Centre for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (CeMM) in Vienna, Austria. The ambition of her group’s research is to find and develop sustainable advanced materials and molecules without compromising the compounds’ performance and chemical diversity, especially through employing water as a reaction and processing medium.
