Maria Zakharova, Ph.D. Materials scientist
Ph.D. inorganique chemistry, researcher of functional materials
Maria’s principal professional passion is based on the sustainable development of our society. She focuses on the synthesis of renewable, biodegradable and functional materials, the generation of renewable energy and on ecological construction. As a scientist, she’s convinced that nature is our greatest teacher and our biggest source of inspiration. Maria thinks that if we begin to understand and practice the ways nature uses physics and biochemistry to build harmoniously functioning whole systems, cascading abundantly and transforming effortlessly, it becomes possible to emulate the functionality embedded in the logic of ecosystems and achieve a success unrivalled by current massively globalized industries.
She considers her mission with CoopPOHÉ to be the transfer of scientific knowledge and skills related to the design, synthesis and the fine-tuning of environmentally benign (zero emission) materials, which will be used in many areas of the 3D printing industry.
