Mary Laura Lind is an associate professor and graduate program chair for chemical engineering in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transport and Energy at Arizona State University. She is also affiliated with the Biodesign Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors and the Mayo Clinic (Arizona) in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension. 

The Lind research group works on advanced membrane materials for applications in water purification, energy production and energy storage. In particular, they are interested in developing a fundamental understanding of the relationships between formation, structure, and material properties and performance.

Lind joined ASU in August 2010 as an assistant professor. Prior to ASU, Lind completed a California Nanosystems Institute Pioneer Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of California Los Angeles in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. Previously Lind received her master's degree and doctorate in materials science from the California Institute of Technology under the guidance of Professor William L. Johnson, and a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Yale University.
