AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow

Šeila Selimović, Ph.D., is an experimental physicist currently working on science and technology issues in public policy. Policy interests include energy, sustainability, science diplomacy and biosafety / biosecurity. Her previous research focused on microfluidics and MEMS solutions for cell and particle organization, biomaterials, and lab-on-a-chip platforms; protein crystallization; rheology.


Šeila Selimović is currently an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow in Washington, DC, working on science diplomacy issues relating to energy security and sustainability. Previously, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School and Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. Dr. Selimović’s research focuses on the development of microfluidic and MEMS platforms for applications in biophysics and biological engineering. A special emphasis of her work is on biosensors and organ-on-a-chip platforms and has been funded by the US Army. Her research interests include the physics of microscale flows, protein crystallization, colloidal suspensions, as well as rheology and microrheology. Dr. Selimović earned her Ph.D. and M. Sc. degrees in Physics from Brandeis University, where she was a recipient of a 2-year NSF Traineeship (IGERT), and her B.A. degree, also in Physics, from Wellesley College. She is a member of Sigma Xi.
