Maher is the Co-Founder and CEO of Infinite Cooling, a start-up disrupting the way industrial plants use water. Maher has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from MIT where he developed a novel patented technology to efficiently recover water from the vapor emissions of cooling systems, using electric fields. Water can then be reused, and water treatment costs and chemicals are minimized. This technology is the basis of Infinite Cooling, which has won numerous awards including an Edison Awards gold medal and the US Department of Energy national startup competition.
Maher also co-founded AgZen, a startup focused on eliminating pesticide waste in agriculture using a new technology Maher co-invented at MIT. The product is currently undergoing trials in the US and Europe.
Maher graduated from École Polytechnique in France with a concentration in mathematics and physics, and now lives in Boston. Maher got several awards for his work including Forbes 30 Under 30 in Energy and the Lemelson-MIT award.
