Christopher Bohn

Christopher Bohn is a CNST Postdoctoral Researcher in the Energy Research Group.  He received his B.S.E. degree in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University, and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology from the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England.  His doctoral work, supported by a Gates Cambridge Scholarship, focused on the synthesis and characterization of iron-based materials for use in carbon dioxide capture and hydrogen production.  At the CNST, Chris is working with Veronika Szalai on scanning probe microscopy measurements on nanoscale photocatalysts for water splitting.
