Chris StubbsGraduate (PhD) Student
Chris was born and raised in the Maryland suburbs near Washington, D.C. Before coming to CSU, in 2019 he obtained a B.S. in Chemistry and Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At UW-Madison, Chris studied inorganic catalysis in the research groups of Dr. John Berry and Dr. Ive Hermans; his senior thesis examined the thermal conversion of CO2 to single carbon products. Before graduation, he also performed research under Dr. Chris Cahill at George Washington University – studying ligand effects in uranyl halogen complexes as well as bulk inorganic synthesis. Chris joined the Kim group during the Summer of 2022 and is currently examining the use of machine learning to predict material properties. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, biking, and listening to music.
