Optica/MRS Congressional Fellow

Optica/Materials Research Society

Term: 2023-2024
Marie Fiori



Marie Fiori (she/her/hers) received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her graduate research examined the molecular packing in organic glasses produced by physical vapor deposition, similar to the ones used as the active layers of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) devices and organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs). She became interested in the intersections of climate, energy, society, and policy when she studied sustainable development in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This interest led her to seek engagement opportunities outside of the lab, where she served in leadership positions in local and national science policy groups. Additionally, she led the Contract Enforcement Committee of her graduate workers’ union.

Marie served as a 2022-2023 Energy Jobs Fellow in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Policy. As an Energy Jobs Fellow, she advanced efforts to create good jobs in the energy sector that are accessible to all workers and coordinated labor engagement at the Department. She looks forward to continuing to accelerate policies that advance clean energy and support American communities as a Congressional Fellow.
