Dr. Mary Ann Leung is a nationally-acclaimed leader in the design and implementation of innovative programs aimed at developing the next generation of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) leaders. Dr. Leung has nurtured her passion for connecting students and science by developing novel and impactful initiatives. In 2014, she created Sustainable Horizons Institute to increase opportunities for underrepresented students and professionals in STEM.

Before launching Sustainable Horizons, Dr. Leung was the program manager for the Department of Energy (DOE) Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (CSGF) program. For this, she developed workshops, arranged for large allocations coupled with training and mentoring, and increased usage of DOE supercomputing resources. During her tenure, the program achieved an unprecedented level of recruitment and fellow and alumni engagement through a strategic of online, regional, professional society, and annual conference activities. As a result of Dr. Leung’s efforts, DOE CSGF doubled the number and overall quality of applicants in five years, including a doubling the number of underrepresented minority applications.

A computational chemist by training, Dr. Leung is an experienced author and researcher. Her research interests include the development of scalable, parallel, scientific codes for the investigation of quantum mechanical phenomena, as well as science and technology education, workforce development, diversity and inclusion. Her research is published in several peer-reviewed journals.

Dr. Leung holds a Ph.D. and an M.S. in Computational Physical Chemistry from the University of Washington. She graduated with honors from Mills College, earning a B.A. in Chemistry with a Math minor.
