Mary Ryan is Professor of Materials Science and currently holds a Royal Academy of Engineering / Shell Research Chair in Interfacial Nanoscience in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London. Her research spans several application areas around the central theme of interfacial materials science: understanding how nanomaterials behave in different systems: in biology and environmental science, and the design of nanomaterials systems for a range of applications from energy to medicine. She has worked extensively in the field of passivity and localised corrosion, and has pioneered the use of synchrotron X-ray based approaches to the in-situ study of reactive electrochemical systems in particular the stability and dissolution of nanoscale structures. She collaborates widely with the Heritage sector on conservation projects, including at the Science Museum London, the V&A and the Mary Rose Trust. She was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2015, and is also a Fellow of the Institute of Corrosion, the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals.

She graduated from the University of Manchester (UK), and worked at Brookhaven National Laboratory (USA) before joining Imperial College.
