Emily Stoler, Ph.D.

Dr. Emily Stoler is a Principal Scientist in Sustainable Materials at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. She has over two decades of experience in sustainable product development and has contributed to over 80 projects in a wide variety of applications. Prior to joining the Wyss Institute, she was a founding member of the Warner Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry (WBI) where she served as a Director of Materials Science. Her work at WBI included designing, managing, and actively executing research on materials such as synthetic polymers, biopolymers (including polysaccharides and hydrogels), novel small molecules, and cocrystals and employed a number of materials processing techniques including spray drying, additive manufacturing (3D printing), twin-screw extrusion, and UV curing.

Dr. Stoler has collaborated with clients ranging from small start-up companies to large Fortune 500 organizations to governmental organizations such as DARPA and NASA. More recently, as a Director of Chemistry at Zymergen, she led a team of chemists and worked in concert with biologists and commercial teams to develop viable product prototypes based on biosynthetically derived starting materials.

At the Wyss Institute, Dr. Stoler is working to expand the Wyss’ sustainability and clean tech portfolio with the goal of building a more sustainable future through technology innovation.
