Roya Maboudian is Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and Co-Director of the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC) at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research interest is in the surface and materials science and engineering of micro/nanosystems, with applications in health and environmental monitoring, harsh-environment sensing, biomematics, energy technologies and sustainability. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the White House, NSF Young Investigator award, and the Beckman Young Investigator award. She is a Fellow of the American Vacuum Society (AVS) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). She has served as editor to the American Chemical Society (ACS) Sensors and the IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems (JMEMS), and as associate editor to IEEE/SPIE Journal on Micro/Nanolithography, MEMS and MOEMS (JM3).
