Mario Wriedt graduated with a M.S. degree in chemistry from the University of Kiel, Kiel, Germany in 2008 and received his Ph.D. degree in 2010 under the supervision of Professor Dr. Näther in Kiel, working in the field of molecular magnetism and thermochemistry. Following a 2.5-year postdoctoral visit at Texas A&M University in Professor Dr. Zhou’s group, his research was focused on metal-organic frameworks with tunable physical properties. He received several awards and fellowships including a postdoctoral fellowship of the German Academic Exchange Service as well as a Ph.D. fellowship of the German Chemical Industry Fund and the German National Academic Foundation. He is author of more than 50 research papers published in peer-reviewed international journals. Since 2013 he conducted his own independent research as Assistant Professor at Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY, USA. His research activities are focused on developing new strategies for the design and synthesis of functional solid-state materials from molecular building blocks and advancing the understanding of the structure-property relationship of materials.
