Michael J. Maroney, PhD, Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in chemistry.
Drawing inspiration from DuPont’s commercial motto; “Better Living Through Chemistry,” Dr. Maroney felt compelled to enter the field. He earned a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Iowa State University in 1977, and subsequently received a Doctor of Philosophy in inorganic chemistry from the University of Washington in 1981. Continuing his academic efforts apace, Dr. Maroney became a postdoctoral fellow for the department of chemistry at the Northwestern University in 1983, and later served as a postdoctoral associate with the University of Minnesota from 1983 to 1985.
Dr. Maroney is most proud to have become the chairperson of a research conference while working in the field. He began his career in 1981 as a research chemist with the Chevron Research Corporation, where he remained for a year. In 1985, he joined the University of Massachusetts, where he has since attained the distinguished title of a professor emeritus. As a testament to his success, Dr. Maroney has received myriad accolades, including an Award for Outstanding Accomplishments in Research and Creative Activity from the University of Massachusetts in 2017, an Outstanding Faculty Award for Research from the College of Natural Sciences from 2009 to 2010, and a National Institutes of Health First Award from 1987 to 1992.
